Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

One aspect of the documentary that held me spellbound throughout the sequence concerned the actual development of the frequency-hopping.

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Hidden Figures is a wonderfully inspiring 2016 film with Taraji P. Henson, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Kevin Costner, and Octavia Spencer about the women involved in the NASA race for space which hits close to home for me. I teach at a local college where the children and grandchildren of some of ...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Excellent question and valid points, Moira.

Lynn's ground-breaking blend of words, images, and videos chronicling these eras of Las Vegas history "will become more common," I hope. I'd also like to know some of Lynn's favorite interview subjects!

Also, how have the innovations devised for Las Vegas hotels ...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Thanks for all these film picks, Moira and Lynn. I think I'm partial to Viva Las Vegas and Ocean's 11. I also enjoy The Las Vegas Story. I love hearing about how your experiences reflect the changing times in Las Vegas. https://youtu.be/UyzhnEqtWAc I remember during the film of Diamonds Are Forever ...
