True Stories Of Tinseltown

Part 2 Sandy Grabman Author of Plain Beautiful:The Peggy Ann Garner Story…Her adult life is tragic

We talk about Peggy Ann as she escapes her mom and moves to independence. Unfortunately, it was no bed of roses. 

I Talk ToThe Fab Sandy Grabman about Peggy Ann Garner and Sandy’s Book Plain Beautiful. Big time Sad Life

I talk to the sweetest woman, Sandy Grabman about her book Plain Beautiful: The Life Of Peggy Ann Garner. Peggy had a pretty rough life. Since she was a child her mom was in and out of the slammer. Her whole life was Peggy and felt she was a star too. Peggy's incredibly tumultuous adulthood, drugs and alcohol, and her own daughter doing drugs at eight. Its a fabulous book, but a sad story. 

Thanks so much to Sandy. She wrote the book 16 years ago, so she reread and we got the story together. 

Sandy's Amazon page. Check out how cute she is. I truly loved her.

Mostly thanks to the listeners and that means YOU!

Much love,

Grace

I Talk To Friend And Author John DiLeo on Characters We Are Supposed To Like In Movies And Vice Versa..Oh That Dreaded Shangra LA

John and I discuss all different characters that we are supposed to dislike but don't and characters we are supposed to like but we don't. There's a bunch of fun choices. See if you agree with us. We discuss Lost Horizon. It's one of my pet peeve films. 

Thanks once again to the delightful John.

Another oldie. Bogie and Bacall, the myth, the legend, the truth..Hey, It’s true Stories Of Tinseltown..

Another oldie. April VeVea and I were doing our iconic couples of classic Hollywood series. Not many were more iconic than these two.. 

 

Back with new episodes this coming week..

 

Miss you all!!

One of my faves. Mae West, the truth about her musclemen, her humor, her being prettier than Raquel Welch and so much more..

Sorry guys for being MIA. Just stuff. I have a couple to post that are brand spanking new but in the meantime, check out the delightfully ageless and fabulous Mae West.

 

Miss you all,

My guest is Tom Foran, son of The singing cowboy/dramatic actor Dick Foran and he watches one of his dads films..Black Legion costarring Bogie for the first time

When we did our other podcast, the movie Black Legion had been on TCM the week before. I asked Tom if he had seen it and hadn't. I asked if he would watch it and discuss, and he watched, and we discussed. It's based on a true story and there really was a Black Legion. This film is unfortunately forever topical. Strike fear in people and keep it up and hence you get groups like this. I can bet they had this since cavemen times. Differing Area's cave peeps spoke different grunts, their feet were bigger, who knows. There's aways someone different and people fearing them. 

It's a fascinating watch. Bogart is very good and so adorably young as a regular Joe being convinced the foreigners, them, they, are coming for his job, his life style and the American way. He does a great job. He won an award as did the film. Dick Foran was very good and a cutie pie. Ann Sheridan was good also in one of her first films, before she became The Oooomph girl. They whole cast was a winner. It's a good watch, but it definitely is not Singing In The Rain.

On a lighter note we discuss Dick's singing cowboy career. Also, the fight to get Dick singing out on the trails before Gene Autry. Gene beat him to it. I was loving Dick's American Cowboy corral of choral singers. He had a whole posse of back up singers. I hope the bad guys didn't hear. ;  )

It's interesting hearing what an actors son has to say about a movie his dad was in that he just discovered. Tom is a wonderful guest and you will enjoy him as much as I do. He is welcome anytime. 

Thanks a zillion Tom. You are fab!! Baby Wyatt is majorly gorgeous. 

Mostly, thanks to the audience. Life throws a lot at you sometimes. I'm a when it rains it pours kinda gal, but I come out swinging and stronger. I know you all can relate. Thanks for being so loyal and patient. I love you all!!

Brand new interview with the FABU Eddie Muller..loads of fun..I crown him a King and guess what Eddie NEVER wears…

This is a new episode I've never put out. I had lots of editing via TCM rule. But I think it flows and Eddie of course is wonderful. I mistakenly call him The King of Noir..Czar, Grace, Czar!! He should be the king as well. 

Eddie tells what he never wears. I was shocked I tell ya!!. We talk noir, shoes, Joan Crawford, is Eddie really Marcia Marcia Marcia, to his pal Ben M's Jan Brady?? All this and mucho more..

 

I want to thank my crush Eddie. He is the best, whether he is the Palooka of Noir, King of Noir or Czar of noir.

You can catch Eddie on Noir Alley every Sunday at midnight and it repeats Sunday AM at 10:00 AM. 

 

Mostly thanks to my listeners. I love you guys..

My pal author John DiLeo and I talk They Was Robbed…Great actors that were NEVER nominated for an Academy Award. I think you will agree They Was Robbed!!

My pal author John DiLeo and I discuss stars from classic Hollywood that were never nominated for an academy award. I think you will be very surprised about some of the peeps we talk about. We also talk about "Special" Oscars and why are they given only when a person is near death, or in one case, dead. 

Sit back with your fave beverage and see if you think They Was Robbed...

Thanks so much to John. I always love him on the show. It's always fun. 

Mostly thanks to the listeners. You are the best..

PS

I've been moving, had surprise dental surgery and a few other things foiling the podcast steadiness. All should be OK now. Thanks for sticking with me.

Stay safe everyone!!!

I talk to Christina Lane about her fab book Phantom Lady:Hollywood Producer Joan Harrison The forgottenWoman Behind Hitchcock. She called him Hitchy..

I talked to Christina and it was fun and full of info I had never known. The book is fab, it has things you didn't know about Hitchy, and Alma and of course Joan. Hollywood being what it was/is there were whispers that Joan had gotten so far with Hitchy because she provided sexual favors. All I know is Joan was very talented and did a couple of films I really love like Phantom Lady and The Strange Affairs Of Uncle Harry. I found Christine when she was on Noir Alley with Eddie M. I ordered the book directly and loved it and set out to get Joan on the show. She is a delight, lots of fun behind the scene stuff too. 

As a PS. I made a mistake about my beloved dulcet voiced Ronald Colman. I confused him with Charles Boyer. Ronald was first choice for the part of Maxim De Winter. 

I really enjoyed finding out more about Joan. I know you will too.

I want to thank Christina so much for coming on.
