My Michael Curtiz manuscript is at the publisher with the book scheduled for publication in 2017.  “Done” is a relative term as there is still a considerable distance to travel before I am holding a completed book in my hand, but the work itself is completed and it’s a good feeling.  With that, I will be returning to my blog and updating the web site on what is going on with me and the world of classic film.

Here I am with the beautiful and charming Barbara Rush. Can you believe that she started in films back in 1950 and is 82 years old - I can't! At the opening night reception, Barbara related a hair-raising story during the filming of HOMBRE (1967) how she and others in the cast nearly plunged over a precipice in a stagecoach!

Here is MSNBC's Kim Morgan with Patty McCormack of THE BAD SEED. Patty received a prolonged standing ovation when the BAD SEED concluded yesterday afternoon and she took to the stage for a Q&A. Probably the greatest performance by a child actor in cinema history. The Camelot Theatre had a full house.

With the incomparable Robert Loggia after a screening of THE GARMENT JUNGLE. During our post screening discussion, Bob talked about how Harry Cohn removed Bob Aldrich from the picture and replaced him with Vincent Sherman due to penny-pinching and bad blood. He also recalled John Huston on PRIZZI'S HONOR responding to Jack Nicholson's request for another take for coverage before moving to the next set-up. Huston: "I'm not running an insurance company, I'm making a movie - let's go."
