I Talk To Lance Lewman Producer, Director, And So Much More On his Musical Brilliance, All About Frances Farmer And Her Troubles. We had a Great Time.

Lance was fab, and I am so intrigued to see how this musical captures the life that was Frances. I heard a couple songs and they were amazing.

Lance was kind enough to offer my listeners a 25% discount. This is Off Broadway so the cost of tickets are not through the roof. If you are in the try state area, or visiting I'd check it out. All you have to do for discount is add TSOT...and its all set. 

You can get tickets here

My Guest IsThe Wonderful Ruta Lee. We Talk Her Book, Consider Your Kissed. She is so fab. We talk Frank S , Twilight Zone And So Much More.

I talk to the warm, wonderful showbiz gal, Ruta Lee. Ruta wrote a book called Consider Your Ass Kissed..Love that title. Ruta and I taped this just after New Years But As you hear in the beginning we could not salvage the first 6 minutes. Three different people tried but nope, so I am going to go ahead, they did what they could...Thanks guys.. without the missing minutes. The rest of our talk is great. She is a true show biz survivor and talks about some of the wonderful people and roles she had along the way. 

This is Ruta talking about what this wonderful charity is. The whole website gives you loads of info.

http://thalians.org/from-ruta.html

You can buy Ruta's book anywhere book are  sold.

https://www.amazon.com/Consider-Your-Ass-Kissed-Ruta/dp/1735383449/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3397VN9B8ITI1&keywords=ruta+lee+book&qid=1646838091&s=books&sprefix=Ruta+Lee%2Cstripbooks%2C77&sr=1-1

Her book is also on Kindle. As I said, reading it is like you are with a friend. Lots of great behind the scenes showbiz stuff and Ruta's fascinating and wonderful life.

 

Thanks so much to Ruta. I deeply apologize for the delay. I test everyone to see how they and we sound. Everyone thats been on my show would tell you that.  Also when I start taping I keep an eye on the sound levels. All looked AOK but nope. I sent to one of the best guys in biz, he had lots on his plate but I finally got it back.  It really is a fun listen and Ruta is a treasure.

Thanks most o all to my listeners. You are the best.

Much Love,

Grace

I Speak To John DiLeo On His Fab New Book..There Are No Small Parts..100 Outstanding Performances With Screen Time Of Ten Minutes Or Less..What If It’s Ten Minutes Plus 5 seconds…The Horror..

I talk to my pal John DiLeo. His new book is wonderful. It's amazing how little time these performers had on screen, but they make HUGE contributions to films. WE did about ten...starting with Elsa Lanchester in her appearance (and it wasn't even close to ten minutes and five seconds) in The Bride Of Frankenstein. It's an iconic role and that film and Elsa will go on forever. We talked some really wonderful performances. It was very hard for me to choose. 

Thanks so much to the fab John. I always enjoy talking to him. His love and knowledge of movies is contagious. 

Mostly thanks to the listeners.

Who Loves you,

I DO

I'm om Tumblr and Pinterest and will start doing shorts on tidbits from  fave classic

movies, stars and interesting places in NYC from Classic Hollywood, Stay tuned!! I will be starting a you tube channel..HELP!! and will be adding my own video and little tidbits about a certain, star or movie a couple times a week. 

 

My twitter. I've used it maybe 12 times, but I will be doing it more 

Part 2 Author Dan Van Neste talks about his book The Magnificent Heel.The Life And Films Of Ricardo Cortez. Ricardo IRL seemed a bit of a heel and cad..Say it aint so..

I could not find this really big shew anywhere. Finally I got t off my old computer. YAY!. I give Dan lots of credit for this book. Ricardo was incredibly private, very unliked by most who acted with him and a very bad husband. I enjoyed the book and was surprised that he was a heel. Lets be fair...not always..but.. Like I said Dan did an amazing job putting this book together without not a lot of help from Hollywood Archives. Its a fascinating story of a mystery guy, who had dirty shirts in his closet..Not IRL..He was quite the fashion plate. January The Fabulous Kay Fwancis was star of the month on TCM. I DVR'd everyone of her films. She worked with Ricardo about four times. I guess she could stand him. Mandalay was my favorite film they made together. Ricardo was a total slime ball in this film. Its a must watch 

 

Thanks so much to the fabulous Dan. I had fun yakking wit him.
