True Stories Of Tinseltown

Part 2 of iconic love stories of classic Hollywood..April and I talk Bogie and Bacall..Perfect Love..Lauren says it was a marriage..

We talk the very iconic and much written about love story of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. They met when Lauren was 20 and Bogie was 45. A huge age difference but it worked. We talk Bogarts guilt about leaving Mayo "Sluggy" Methot.  They married and life was exciting. Lauren learned the ropes of Hollywood through Bogies pals and became one of the boys. Bogie at first was not keen on kids, but they had two. We talk their life, their loves, flirtations. The end of their love story came when Bogie was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. We discuss Laurens search for love after his death. They had it all....but did they? 

Thanks so much to my pal April for doing this with me. Our blonde bombshell series was lots of fun and I know the listeners will enjoy this. WE've got some great love stories coming up..I have a new friend name for April and I, Grapril. I know Cornball deluxe.

You can find April at www.classicblondes.com and on twitter and instagram

Mostly thanks to the listeners. If you have any classic Hollywood pals tell them to give this show a listen. There really is something for everyone.

Love you all,

Grace

I talk to my dreamboat David Selby about Babs S, George Cukor, Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman and loads more..

I had so much talking about to my dreamy David. Yes, he is still well known by so many from Dark Shadows, but in this podcast we talked about his making a movie with Babs Streisand, how he became pals with Joanne Woodward through Dark Shadows and her Mom. Having a cold brew with Paul Newman. George Cukor directing Rich And Famous starring Candace Bergman and Jaqueline Bisset. George loved David with longer hair. Davids meeting with Cary Grant, some of the great guest stars from Falcon Crest. Gina Lollobrigida was quite fond of David and invited him to Italy. You will have fun listening to his stories, I know I did. 

Thanks so much to David for coming on the show. I'm so grateful we are friends. 

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

Love you all,

Grace

I talk to the fab Laurie Jacobson about her new book. TV dinners 40 classic tv kid stars dish up fave recipes and memories. Wheres Larry Mondello??

I had a great time talking to my friend Laurie Jacobson about her new book TV Dinners..40 Classic TV Kid Stars Dish Up Favorite Recipes And Memories. We had so much fun catching up and talking about her book. She knows all the folks in the book because she became a member of the kid stars family after she married Jon Provost, who was Timmy in The Lassie Show. There are so many of our faves. Veronica and Angela Cartwright. They were from England and both so talented. You remember Veronica for her amazing performances in The Birds and The Children's Hour. Veronica continued acting as an adult. I've just recently been watching The X Files..I know 20 years later. Veronica had a major recurring part. Angela was known for Make Room For Daddy, Lost In Space and The Sound Of Music. She is now a wonderful artist. Lots of scoops. 

We talk the Leave It To Beaver Crew..Larry Mondello was missing, now he's found. The Walton's The Brady Bunch, The Dick Van Dyke show, My Three Sons and so many more. They all give fave food as kids, then give yummy recipes as adults. It will make you long for wonder bread, peanut butter and Marshmallow fluff. 

This is a fun podcast for these crazy days. I read the book curled up and just enjoyed seeing what happened to all these wonderful kid stars that have brightened many a generations day.

I thank Laurie so much for coming on. We did a few scoops ourselves. She is so much fun and I love her. 

Mostly thanks to my listeners. I'm so excited to have heard from people that have just stumbled across the podcast. 

I love you all, from my long time listeners on down. Please be safe.
