I TALKED TO MY PAL ALEX HUNTER TO SEE WHATS UP SINCE OUR LAST VISIT. WE TALK COING OUT IN THE FIFTIES OR SIXTIES. CAREERS WOULD STILL BE RUINED, ALSO SOME JOAN COLLINS AND LONI ANDERSON SCOOP..
I was so happy to have my friend Alex Hunter on my show again to see whats been going on in her life. Alex wrote the incredible book..Joi Lansing; A Body To Die For. A LOVE Story. if you have not read this book I highly recommend it. Alex has a way of making the reader feel like we are living this with her. Its great
We talked some exciting stuff. Alex was invited by a high school to give a lecture to senior students on her book. They loved her. The school is buying six hundred books to be on their curriculum. YAY ALEX! One school down, more to go. We talked her appearances on TV and radio and I pondered if she had gone show biz on me. We discussed the recent death of Tab Hunter and the movie being made about his affair with Anthony Perkins. They would pick up dates/beards and double date but at the end of the night Tab and Tony went off their own as did their dates. I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie. I thought that Joi and Alex story can come at it from two women in love and closeted in the age of flower children and free love. It was NOT THAT free. you would still be ruined if they found out someone was gay.. I asked how Joy feltt about the big change in films and the 50's and sixty bombshells were not being cast. You had Faye Dunaway, Jane Fonda etc.. She noticed and was very distressed. I asked Alex if she thought it had changed much since classic Hollywood to the fifties to today. She thinks its better but no one should be forced out of closet.
She told me her recent fan shows she's been too. One was in LA and she had a blast. The other one was as Jois partner to celebrate superman. Joi played the man of steels wife. WHO KNEW!! Alex had a great time. I asked her for some juice. She provided. All of a sudden Diva Joan Cllins comes into the room by her space, where she is not pleased to see Bombshell Loni Anderson was in the booth next to her. Queen Joan would have none of that and after some choice words they took Joan away from Lana and she was the entrance not closely to anyone. Once a diva, always a diva.
I really loved having Alex on. She is always fun.Plus she's my pal. Lets get her movie made!!

I had a great time talking to Lisa Iannucci about her book On Location: A FILM AND TV LOVERS TRAVEL GUIDE. She told me about attending The Lucille Ball Festival in Lucy's hometown of Jamestown, New York . I so want to go and stomp some grapes. She and her very game hubby took it on and had a blast. We talked Clark Gables house and hometown, The Ava Gardner Museum, The Hollywood Museum that has so much great classic movie memorabilia. The Gone with the Wind Museum, the Andy Griffith museum, who knew, there is even a Don Knotts museum. Theres an Alfred Hitchcock Walking tour and of course visiting the graves of the stars. She has all great places to visit in the United States in State alphabetical order. There are a ton of great places I'd like to check out. She gives all the info you need. She got to Bedrock and slid down a huge dinosaurs tale. FUN!! I highly recommend Lisa's book. There are so many places you would never know about. She is even going to do a second book because there are so many places.
Thanks so much Lisa! You were so great.

A Film and TV Lover's Travel Guide
- By Lisa Iannucci
MY GUEST WAS THE VERY COOL KATHY GARVER, MY BUD POSEIDON WAS MY COHOST, WE TALKED CLASSIC MOVIES AND UNCLE BEEYOOO….
I TALK TO LEAH WILLIAMS FROM HER GREAT BLOG "CARY GRANT WON"T EAT YOU". WE TALK CAD STEVEN DALLAS, DREAMY DIMPLED WILLIAM POWELL AND ANN BAXTER IN BLUE GARDENIA ACTING GUILTY ..
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.
