Thank you, Alexa. Those film festival articles are always interesting, and I'm sure a lot of research and hard work goes into each one.

Count me in as someone else interested in the Dean Stockwell interview.

Alexa, how did the sudden snowstorm in Atlanta affect those of you at TCM? Were some of you stuck on the road, or left at the station all night? Here's hoping things get back to normal quickly.

Nancy-

I have not forgotten the MEET ME lady and I am taking a frame grab with me to LA to check with another friend of mine as to who she might be.

We had TWO snow storms here. that is why I have been out of pocket for soooooooo long.
The first was during a Ben shoot and we only got halfway through the first day and had to wrap. It took 2 hours to get home and believe me I was LUCKY. It took Holly from programming SIX hours.
The next two days we were snowed in.

The second event was (OF COURSE) during a Robert shoot. The team was in NYC and I was able to Skype with Robert all 3 days from home. Technology is wonderful!!
Yesterday we had Ben fly back in and we completed his shoot.

Am I behind on any questions? Mary Astor is March, John Wayne is April and June Allyson is May and Rock Hudson is June.
Maybe June should be June? who knows….

Mrs. O.

Thanks so much..it has been a challenge this winter, just to stay warm and safe for so many of us. Enjoy the festival, if that is possible, with all the work it takes to seem "effortless".

Hey Alexa,

If you have time when you are here visiting in the City of Angels, would love to get together with you for coffee or a drink!

Alexa,

Let's hope the words "Atlanta" and "snow" aren't used in the same sentence again this year! I'm glad none of you got stuck in your cars overnight.

Rock Hudson should be an interesting Star of the Month, especially if some of the less common Universal titles were available. The recent appearance of Douglas Sirk films on the schedule shows that the Universal vault doors are slowly creaking open.

It's exciting that the festival is now less than two months away.

Thanks for chatting with us,

David

Nancy-

The MEET ME lady is now confirmed as CHARLOTTE HUNTER. My pal Woolsey in LA said that both Dorothys (Raye and Tuttle)
confirmed - when they were still around - that she was indeed CHARLOTTE HUNTER.

Also Lynn, yes when I get to LA in April, please let's get together for some movie chat!!!

Thank you, Mrs. Osborne for confirming the info posted on the Judy Garland Message Board in May 2012, which we had considered here last September:

Where's the "Like" button? Where's the "Like" button?!

It's a large blue weight taken off my shoulders. Now, of course, I want to learn all about Charlotte Hunter. Thank you so much, Mrs. Osborne. I can finally rest after decades of searching.
