Happy New Year!!!!!

Hey everyone,

I did seven tries. This is gonna have to do it. 

When talking about Ed Asner I meant midlife crisis.

Eddie Muller would look swell in jeans with Oxford shirt.

Hedy Lamarr alleged that Clark Gable during a break from filming Boomtown, came into her room and started sucking her toes.. HA!!

Merry Christmas To Everyone!!

I want to thank you all for listening to me. You are all the best. 

 

Merry Christmas, if You don't celebrate Christmas, Happy Saturday and if for some reason you are alone, by choice or circumstances, get a pizza and EAT EVERY SLICE, or dance and sing. That always makes me feel better, unfortunately my neighbors don't appreciate my musical and dance talent..HA!

Be safe!!

Lots of love,

Boze has been on the show I believe three times. This is Boze's 28th book.. WOWSA. It's very good and lots of info on Elvis. Its quotes people who knew him in childhood, just starting out, becoming a sensation all the way through his death. I learned a lot of things I never knew. Yes, he shot guns at TV's, and had a very young Priscilla move in with him. One thing you can never take away from Elvis is that he is a legend, and no-one could ever be like him. 

The book is

I Talk To Fabulous Christina Lane, We talk A Bit About Her Book Phantom Lady, And I AskChristina One Of The Most Tough Questions About Noirvember and Betty Shaefer..

Christina was such a great guest. I wanted to ask her a few more questions about her book Phantom Lady:Hollywood Producer..The Forgotten Woman Behind Hitchcock. Its a wonderful book and lots of juicy tidbits. 

Christina was a good sport, we talked some good girls of Noir, first up Ella Raines, next Betty Shaefer. The million dollar question I asked Christina was did she think Betty would go back to the sweet and actually non stiff, just the facts ma'am, Artie Greene. See what her answer is. We talked before we started and chose a couple extra people. Christina was game. It was a lot of fun. 

Question to you all, I love Gloria Grahame as a bad girl, but in the film The Big Heat, she risked her life for Glenn Ford, got scalding coffee thrown in her face. For real, she saved the day. She asked GlennFord about his wife..Don't you dare ask me about my wife. You are not even worthy to use the word wife." Debbie gave her life. AS she was dying after she saved his butt, he started telling her about his wife...What a trooper. She was a good girl.

 

Check out Christina's author page. I can't recommend Phantom Lady enough.

Thanks so much to all of you for getting me noticed as one of the best old Hollywood podcasts. Funny, I was just thinking about rolling up my microphone. He changed my mind. He is the darling Matthew Chernov, and the article was written in Variety.

Thanks so much to my loyal listeners. I love you all!!

I TalkTo The Fab Robert Matzen About His Book Errol Flynn Slept Here. He Was A Peeper In Life, Was He A Peeper In Death..I

I loved this book. It talks about Errols great love for his home, his two way mirrors, his alcohol and drug addiction and his love for young chickypoo's. Of course we get into his statutory rape trial. He found his next girlfriend at the cigarette counter in the court house. She was the ripe old age of 18...LEGAL..

WE talk Errols horrible demise. Then Robert tells about the following two owners. One was a Christian music singer, that had tons of kids and grandchildren. His wife was a good Christian woman so she removed the bar...Horrors and put in an organ. They left and next owner was Rick Nelson. His daughter Tracy lived there for a time and said she saw Errol a lot...Of course, she was a young cutie. Rick died on New Years eve going to a gig in an airplane crash. 

You will love the chapter on the paranormal happenings in the house. Truly spooky..

Thanks mucho, once again to Robert. He is always a great guest. 

Most of all thanks to my listeners. I love you all!!

Grace

Put On Your Tap Shoes. Today The Fab John DiLeo and I Talk Broadway To Film. Marnie Nixon..Too Dub Or Not To Dub..

In the first minute nothing was edited but I guess the download did. SPOOOOOOOOKKKY.. Not much was missed except I explain I've done no musical shows because it's not my fave genre. Never Fear...John is here and he knows them all. We talk Broadway to Screen adaptations. Poor Julie Andrews lost two of her Broadway shows to Audrey Hepburn in MY Fair Lady, and Vanessa Redgrave in Camelot. WE talk dubbing, dueling  A Star Is Born, Babs and much more. John chose the topic and he lead the pack and was so great. I learned a lot to.

Thank you to John. You are always Great. 

Check out John's authors page. So many great books. One is coming out in FEb. Cant wait to talk about it..

Part 2 of Spooktacular. Stone And I talk Horror Movies From 60‘s, 70‘s and eighties. Our Recording Was Haunted…Really

Stone and I were merrily talking horror films. We had gone about 45:00 minutes. All of a sudden I see it only recorded 32.00 minutes. We had to go back to figure where to start off again. Then this piece of wire came out again. It has NEVER happened during one of my podcasts, let alone happen twice. I was on it right away. So I edited and hopefully it flows. Also when I listened, sentences where repeated almost on top of the regular sentence. Very Creepy. It was a spooky spooktacular taping. Stone and I were at it for over 2 and a half hours. I sound it. Sorry. Stone was drinking coffee so he sounded as perky as ever. He does his Peter Lorre impersonation, which is great but his Dracula is fab.  I pronounced Stanley Kubrick like Stanley KEWWWWWbrick. Ugh.

Anyhow it was a spooky but fun spooktacular. Thanks so much to Stone for being so great. He is the best. 

You can check out his books here.

Thanks to Stone for your patience.

Mostly thanks to the listeners. I love you guys

Part 1 It‘s Spooktacular Time Again. Yes, Annoying Spooky Laughs. My Friend Stone Wallace And I Discuss Horror films from 30‘s, 40‘s and 50‘s…So Spooky Tacular!

It's Spooktacular 2021. I'm joined by fellow horror movie lover and my pal Stone Wallace. He joins in with spooktacular laughter and does A Fab Dracula...Bela of course..

We talk movies from the 20's, only two. Then the 30's, 40's and fifties.. I make an embarrassing confession.. I think Stone was secretly disgusted HA! The Wolfman and his clothes. Nostradamus, my mistake, Nosferatu..He was one scary MOFO. Stone tells his fave horror and so much more. WE are doing Spooktacular Part 2, talking about Scary movies from the 60's, 70's and eighties. Lots of good ones. 

Sorry for my name mixups. My brain was filled with horror movie fog.
