True Stories Of Tinseltown

Part 2 I talk to Author Dan Van Neste about his book They Coulda Been Contenders, Guess who was a mean Barrymore..

February 26, 2020

I talk to Author Dan Van Neste about his book, They Coulda Been Contenders:Twelve Actors That Should've Been Cinematic Superstars.  Dan picks twelve shoulda's and coulda's. Included the wonderful Zachary Scott best known as Monte Berigon in Mildred Pierce, Marian Marsh, Gloria Stewart, who had a comeback at 86 in The Titanic, John Hodiak best known for Alfred Hitchcocks, Lifeboat. We discuss his marriage to Anne Baxter and his tragic early death and so  much more. Dan also got to interview many of those profiled and we get to know some really great behind the scenes stuff. I enjoyed Dan thoroughly as I did his book.

Thanks so much to Dan for coming on the show. He was great. Mostly thanks to you for listening. You are the best.

I'm everywhere podcasts are played.

Please come and follow me on Facebook. I post new content almost every day.

I'm on Tumblr and Pinterest as well. Sorry about website. Its a mess and nowhere near ready. 

Also sorry I've not been posting weekly podcasts. I had about 8 weeks all set for Iconic true love stories of Hollywood. My cohost for series April VeVea got engaged and is getting married in two weeks, how dare she!! Just kidding. April is the best and I wish her only wonderful things. I'm so happy for her. We had to postpone and I had to book some guests. I've got a great group coming up.
