I had a great time talking to Leah Williams from the blog Cary Grant Won't EAT YOU.. I love that title. I had read a post she did on Villain Steven Dallas from Stella Dallas. It was a great read and made me want to punch Stevie baby even more. We also talk about Brief Encounter and ask is Dr Alec a sincere sensitive guy or a shyster that has done this kind of thing regularly, the old, my friend lets me use his bachelor pad ploy. Then we move onto Blue Gardenia starring Ann Baxter. Its a fun flick with Raymond Burr playing a lecherous artist. She gets dumped by her soldier boy and ends up at dinner with that swinger Raymond and gets very drunk, much to Raymonds delight. He brings her back to his bachelor pad and tries to make advances on poor Ann. Ann being drunk....but not that drunk....Fights off the brute and here comes the fireplace poker. She is the opposite of cool as a cucumber. Ann Sothern and Richard Conti also star. Theres a funny scene when Richard tosses his little black book to his friend since he won''t need it anymore. Then onto the adorably suave, cool, and very funny William Powell. We both find him to be incredibly dreamy. I'm swooning now. 
Thanks so much to Leah for being my guest. It was her first podcast and she was great!! She'll be back.
Mostly thanks to the listeners. You are the best.

Donnie and I had a great time with Susan Shumsky. She was so honest and funny about her times with the diminutive Guru. She was a groovy flower child in the late 60's as she made her way to Haight Ashbury to be in the free love, no shave your pits or gams  time of possibilities. Susan was a seeker and when she found out about TM and after seeing the Maharishi she was hooked FOR THIRTY YEARS. I found myself pretty mad at how Maharishi treated Susan. Find out about the maharishi's incredible sense of smell, his dealings with the Beatles and Mia Farrow also how John came to write the song Sexy Sadie. Hear about Dear Prudence Farrow being the second hand rose in the Farrow/Marharishi  family. She takes us on a great journey.  You feel like you are their with her. Love her and Love her book!!!

Thanks so much Susan for being so honest and a good sport.
Mostly, thanks to our listeners.

I talked to Stephen Michael Shearer about his biography on Hedy Lamarr titled Beautiful: The Life Of Hedy Lamarr. Its a really good read. I usually skip a page here and there but I didn't with this book. I was fascinated by her childhood, her life in Vienna, her marriage to the third richest man in Vienna and her story of her escape from him and Vienna. We talked Hedy's six marriages. None lasting or happy. Her incredible inventions and her movie career. They really did not know what to do with her. 

Of course being so beautiful and aging were large in her mind. People would meet her and say" You WERE so beautiful. She soon took to getting extensive plastic surgery that was not at all flattering. She also started seeing Dr Feelgood for his amazing B vitamin shots (actually meth) She started acting erratically. She shoplifted, and then she moved to Florida and became a recluse, not even letting her children see her. In 1997 she was finally lauded for her inventions. She never got a penny from them. 

This is a very extensive look into Hedy's life. You can also see Stephen on the new Hedy Movie Bombshell. Its available on Netflix. 

I want to thank Stephen for being such a great guest. I'm looking forward to talking g to him about other women he wrote about; Gloria Swanson and his friend Patricia Neal. 

Thanks to the listeners. You are the best..

I had such a great time talking to Rick Lenz. We discussed his memoir North Of Hollywood:An Actors Stumbling Baby Steps Toward Kindness And Peace.. Its a great read. He talked about his life and all the amazing people he worked with. He talks those Feuding Gabor Sisters and the experiences while doing Arsenic And Old Lace. He has stories on Ingrid Bergman, Goldie Hawn, Lauren Bacall. He told a very funny one involving Laurens husband at the time Jason Robards. We get some scoops about Jackie Gleason, Richard Boone , Jaqueline Bisset, and so many more. He tells us about his proximity to a future Ax Murderer and playing pool with an unbeknownst to him serial murderer in a leather jacket. He got lots of hate mail for taking The Bionic Woman away from Steve Austin, The Million Dollar Man..He tells us if he is a kinder gentler man that has found peace.  There are too many great stories to recount. Trust me, its a fun listen..
Thanks so much to Rick. You were amazing. I would be very happy having you on again.

Thanks to my pal Jessica Rains for making this show possible..

Mostly thanks to the listeners. Stay tuned. Lots of great stuff coming up..
Love you,
Grace

We had a great time talking to Carla Feagan author of the book A Life Worth Living:The Journey Of An Authentic Soul. She tells about overcoming the darkness in her past and feeling unworthy of love and attention. She takes us on her journey to becoming an authentic soul. She also takes us on her journey on a nude cruise. She had to take it all off to go on the cruise. The Captains and cruise workers had clothes on. At the Captains dinner they had to wear something. Some wore lingerie, others bathing suits. We talk muffs or no muffs, bare sweaty butts on chairs, and the difference of HPV versus HIV...just joshing..It was a fun interview and Carla was great. I think we were her third show she did and she was a pro. We loved her.

Many thanks to Carla for being such a doll and good soul. 

Thanks to or listeners. We love youse all.

We talk to Gil Valle better known as Cannibal Cop. He joined us in studio. He looks like your average nice guy from Queens, not some monster wanting to cook and eat women. We wondered if we should have him on but decided it was a fascinating story and who better then him to tell it. He talks about his trial, his fetish that we both find repugnant, but there are countless others out there on fetish net that have the same thoughts. He tells us of one theory a shrink had on what made him find eating women sexually arousing. The jury convicted him, not for an actual crime he committed, they found him guilty because they thought he would commit a crime. He was also found guilty of accessing a woman information on police data base. He could have been sent to jail for life for the jury thinking he would commit a crime. This was highly publicized and the verdict was very controversial. This case is now being discussed in law schools everywhere. Can we be found guilty because he MIGHT commit a crime. Is this the thought police?? We just let him tell his story. 

​Thanks so much to Gil for coming in and telling his side of the story. 

Thanks so much for listening

We talk to Non Secular Exorcist Rachel Stavis about her Memoir Sister Of Satan:Chronicles Of A Modern Day Exorcist. If you've seen the exorcist it isn't like that. No pea soup spewing.  Rachel has seen what she calls entities since she was a child. She tried to not see them but eventually she could not avoid them. She can see these entities attached to people. She also gives these entities different names based on the level of malevolence. I saw a Clive attached to Donnies shoulder trying to get him to stop eating pretzels during the show....didnt work. Rachel's is quite a fascinating story. I read her book and it was very good. she writes like she speaks. Very relatable and fun. She was a great guest. Whether you believe it or not is up to you. All I know is Rachel makes people feel better, she does not charge for exorcism but will accept donations. 

Then we had a humongous change of pace when we talked to the adorable Stephan Szuchs. He is doing an admirable project to clean up the land and seas. It's called Sustainable Joes. He was adorable, he liked my voice HA!! He also called me Miss Grace. Did he mean I was old??? Anyhow whatever he thought he is doing great stuff.

Thanks so much to Rachel for coming on the show. She was a great guest and it was a very fascinating interview. 

Also thanks to Stephan Szuchs for liking my voice..HA! He was adorable. 

Thanks to you for listening to our show.

I talk to Author Joseph Egan about his book The Purple Diaries: Mary Astor and the Most Sensational Hollywood Scandal of the 1930s.  It talks of Mary's life and the scandal that she thought would end her career. Mary kept diaries and she let it all out on the pages. She talked about her passionate extramarital  love affair, friends of hers and all sorts of very personal insights. Her ex-husband found them and basically blackmailed Mary to give him custody of her child and monetary gains. When she signed the paper Mary was very ill and horrified her diaries were made public. After seeing his behavior with their daughter Mary took him to court to get full custody of her daughter. His defense was of course her diaries..It was too juicy for people to resist. The courtroom was packed everyday. There were vendors in the hallways selling hot dogs and popcorn. It was a circus. Joe was great and he had insight into Mary via her daughter that he became email pals with. Its a fascinating story. Things I learned from this show, NEVER have a diary, but if you do don't get into your sex life and talking about other people. I'd have been horrified. Good listen. Mary was a gutsy dame. Mary's family gave Joe so many great pictures and info and he shares it with everyone. 

Thanks so much to Joseph Egan for coming on the show and giving us so much great behind the scenes info. He was fun.

Thanks so much for listening!!

I had the honor, once again to sit and talk with film historian and ex New York Post Film critic Lou Lumenick about the film MISSION TO MOSCOW. I gave Lou his choice on what he wanted to talk about and he chose this film. I had never heard of it. Its got to be seen to be believed. FDR asked personally for Warner Brothers to make the book into a film to help the war effort.It was one a the first of a few propaganda films put out to sweeten Russias image to the American people.  It was directed by Michael Curtiz fresh off his stint of director of Casablanca. The movie was based on a memoir by former Ambassador to Russia Joseph E Davies.You will meet him because he is on smack dab on the screen talking about the movie before the film starts. He was upset they cast Walter Huston because he did not look like him. Guess he had to show us just how much better looking he was. HA!  You will get a neck ache from shaking your head as you watch this film. the Ambassador upon hearing that the Russians were spying on them through listening devices just fluffs it off and says "Let them listen. We have nothing to hide." !!!!!! I have to watch it again because the first time it was like a daze, a bunch of Huhhhhss..See Stalin as warm and fuzzy as a cuddly stuffed bear. Hear FDR do his best imitation of God talking to Moses in The Ten Commandments. Learn Cavier and champagne is for everybody!! There really is so much to talk about with this film. I will link you to two articles Lou wrote on this film. I'm so glad he turned me onto it. We end our chat with a few classic Hollywood tidbits. I had a great time with Lou. He will be on again soon to discuss screwball comedies. YAY!!!
Thanks so much to Lou for being such a fabulous guest.
Thanks to you, the listeners. Lots of great classic movie talk on the calendar.
