True Stories Of Tinseltown

I speak to Author Jeremy Arnold on his book The Essentials Vol. 2 : 52 More Must-See Movies and Why They Matter..We Talk Freaks, Cads and Andy Griffith as a demagogue..Lots of fun

I had a wonderful time talking about some of the movies Jeremy had chosen for his Essentials Volume 2.  Sometimes you may wonder, "Why Oh Why, is this an essential"..Jeremy lets you know. This is from The TCM library but you can get it anywhere books are sold. Jeremy had already done Volume 1. The movies are great. These are movies that my comfort guy Robert Osborne chose, along with a coterie of guests hosts, Drew Barrymore, Alec Baldwin and Sally Field. After the death of Robert, Ben Mankiewicz still hosts the essentials today every Saturday night at 8 PM on TCM.

 took over. Not only do we get Jeremy's thoughts we get snippets of Roberts and all the hosts. Its a fun read and there are a bunch of movies to check out. 

I highly recommend book. Lots of great flicks to check out.. 

 

Thanks a zillion to Jeremy, he was fun and so  knowledgable. He was patient with my digressions (who me?) 

You can find his books

Part 2 I talk to Chris Korman about his book OMG..It’s Harvey Korman’s Son…Lots of fun and lots of great stories

Chris wrote a book that was a love letter to his dad. I enjoyed the book and talking to Chris especially. We discussed his learning disability. The great support he got from Harvey. Harvey never thought he was all that and a bag of chips. He had studied Classical theatre.. Many very big stars came up to Harvey such as Burt Lancaster, Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward and so many others telling Harvey how great he was and that they watched every Saturday night and they could never do what he does. Chris was with his dad through all that. Sad story about Chris meeting Rock Hudson on the set of Dynasty.. Chris has overcome so much. He is a husband and dad and he made his father so proud. Very good listen..THe book is a great read. Chris and I are now pals..He is a true sweetie pie. WE give a shout out to our friend Stone Wallace. All his friends miss him..

Thanks so much to Chris..You were fab and so honest.

Part 2 I talk to authorJeremy Arnold on his book Christmas In The Movies 30 Classics To Celebrate The Season

Jeremy wrote this book for the TCM collection. He is also author of The Essentials 1 and The Essentials Part 2. Hopefully he will be back in the New Year and we can discuss his choices.

Jeremy chose a variety of Christmas movies. Of course the old classics, he also chose some of the more modern Christmas movies. There are lots of tidbits. I enjoyed it thoroughly. He was a lot of fun and he knows his Christmas flicks. We both have the same fave A Christmas Carol, there could be couple you have never heard of so check on TCM or You tube. I have a few that I love that didn't make the book. One I think you should check out is Christmas Holiday. It is on you tube (so far). Jeremy thought it wasn't really a Christmas movie, but it was during Christmas, there were flashbacks, but ultimately about letting go and being free culminating on Christmas night.. Deanna Durbin was great in her only dramatic role, and Gene Kelly was a charming swine. All of Jeremy's choices are great so its a great read and check out those movies. 

I want to thank Jeremy so much for being my guest. He was fab.  This was supposed to be out last week, but it was beyond my control. 

Most of all I want to thank my listeners. You all are the best. Sorry about my disappearance from Facebook but my eyes really needed/need the break. 

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays. Please be safe. 

Much Love,

Grace

I talked to Lara Parker, who played the amazing Angelique in Dark Shadows. We talk the show, her career and my used to be liked a lot horror film. The real scary stuff was behind the scenes.

I had a great time talking to Lara, she was so forthcoming and a lot of fun. I want to thank my pal David Selby for asking her to come on the show.

We talk Dark Shadows, her feminist witch, then vampire. She talks about biting Johnny Carson and we discussed the horror film she starred in, Race With The Devil, 1975. When I first moved TO NYC it was on Channel 11 and scared me big time. The behind the scenes scoop she gave me was the real horror.. You will be very mad, not at Lara but the production team. It was an informative and interesting show. 

Thanks so much to Lara for coming on the show. She was fabulous.

 

Mostly thanks to you, the listeners.. You are the best!!

Some one messed with my website

Hi everyone,

 

I got some weird stuff on my website. Someone emailed to see if they had to pay to listen. I certainly hope no creep is trying to charge people. My show is free. Anyone can listen. I have never asked for a dime. If anyone has been asked for money please email me at truestoriesoftinseltown@gmail.com This stuff makes me so mad. I loathe charlatans. 

 

Anyhow I hope all are safe. I will be posting my interview with Lara Parker, who played Angelique on Dark Shadows and is an author as well. She tells me a horrible dog abuse story.. UGHH. 

 

Much love,

 

Grace

Part 2 My Guest Sloan De Forest and I talk about the lovely and tragic Gene Tierney..WE also digress to Grace Kelly and that important question..Did Gene indicate???

 

Sloan and I had planned on doing the Gene podcast to be released on her birthday..WE came close. We talk Gene's childhood, her stardom, her marriage to Oleg Cassini,, her daughter Daria that was born severely disabled. If you don't know why, we tell you. It's so tragic. We discuss Gene's years battling mental illness to getting out of Hollywood to live with her new husband, a Texas oilman, that had once been married to Hedy Lamarr. Gene wrote a wonderful memoir and she did not hold back. Mental illness was not to be talked about. Gene did and I'm sure she helped many during their own battles. Not only was Gene beautiful, but she was beautiful inside as well. Grab a cup of joe, tea, wine, eggnog and listen to Genes journey. 

 

Thanks so much to Sloan for being a great cohost and guest. She has just finished another super duper book. Here are a few of her others

Here is the lovely Sloan's authors page. I love her books.

Mostly thanks to my listeners. My eyes have been achy and very strained from too much reading and computer. I took a break for a while. You really are the best!!

Love you mucho,

Grace
