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,

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.

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!!

 

Grace

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,

Grace

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..
