Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Thanks, Moira. As I mentioned, I have to deliver a talk tomorrow midday on two other books I've written, (Civil War history stuff), but I'll be back afterwards. I've enjoyed chatting with everybody very much. See you tomorrow. Good night.

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

TopBilled and Christy, When I knew Ann Blyth would not participate, I just continued as I would with any other writing project. I've written a great deal of history in articles and books, and I tend to approach most non-fiction subjects as a history writer -- with the topic juxtaposed against the ti...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Christy, that's a smashing photo. I wish I could have used that for the book. She has an inner glow which lights up around other people, and she is thoroughly enchanted by questions from fans, so I'm hoping when I read the last chapter of your book including your interview with Fossy, that I will fi...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Moira, the first two chapters cover her early childhood in Manhattan when she first started working at the age of six on the radio, garnered jobs, principally due to her singing voice, in children's roles with the Children's Opera Company of New York and the San Carlo Opera, and then was chosen to a...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

TopBilled, I don't know who to contact to get Ann's Universal films released, but I would love to join such a campaign. All those films are discussed in detail in my book, and Katie Did It made it into the book in the nick of time. For the longest time, that was the one I couldn't obtain, until a lo...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Since we have a quiet moment here, I'd like to publicly thank on these boards one of your own, Doug Trembearth, who goes by the name Fossy. As some of you probably know, last October, he went on the TCM Cruise, traveling a great distance all the way from Australia to do it. Fossy generously allowed ...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Thank you so much, Jacqueline! http://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee485/suesueapplegate/imagesCAYY3CH0_zpsqjl9odl9.jpg I also enjoyed The Helen Morgan Story , and felt that emotionally Ann Blyth seemed to immerse herself in the role. What can you share with us about her preparation for that film? ...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Christy, I seem to have lost my reply to your earlier Helen Morgan question, but I'll fix that in a minute. As regards this: "It seems that Ann Blythe's versatility and good sense of humor has seen her through a number of challenging roles. Not really saying a word the whole time she is on the ...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

TopBilled, the question of which studio served her better, Universal or MGM is an interesting debate. I think starting at Universal was good for her, because it gave her, as you say, a variety of roles. It was a smaller studio and was she less apt to be lost in the shuffle of the MGM "more star...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Moira, I'm sorry I neglected to answer your question earlier about contacting Ann Blyth personally. I did contact her through her representative, and he relayed to me that she respectfully declined to participate in the project, which I respect and I decided to just proceed as I would with any histo...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Moira, I agree that Ann is photographed beautifully in both films. Killer McCoy was her first loan-out from Universal after Mildred Pierce , and here, though she plays a troubled young woman caught between her gangster father and her growing friendship with Rooney, who plays a street tough turned bo...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Thank you, TopBilled, Those are two great movies. Red Canyon is a complete departure from any film she had made up to that time, and it was her first color movie. We get to see how athletic she was, more than just the film noir clotheshorse. She's not the sophisticate here, just a scrappy young girl...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Hi, Christy. I'm so glad to be here. I like Rose Marie for a few reasons: First, it is the closest to the original version of the hit play of the 1920s of any movie version. The more famous Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy film had very little resemblance (despite still be a great movie) to the or...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

First of all, let me apologize for just realizing I need to refresh the page to see the next question. I am a fool. Hi, Theresa, and I envy your experience seeing Ann Blyth at the TCM festival, meeting her, and your neat photo. I don't think I have a single favorite role among her movies -- I like M...
