My book. . . .

Has been released early! You can find it on CreateSpace.com as well as Amazon.com! This has been a long and sometimes drawn out process but I am finally done. A huge thanks to everyone who has helped me on my journey especially Chuck Murphy for allowing me to use his beautiful Andre photo. So what’s next? I’m currently working on a book about Jayne Mansfield with a working title of “Puffblicity.” I hope to have it out in the summer of 2018. Wait and see!

Interview

I was lucky enough to be given a chance to interview respected Dixie State University professor, Dr. Timothy Bywater who has his PH.D. in English and Film History, just in time for Marilyn’s 90th! Dr. Bywater was kind enough to delve into Marilyn’s chances of an Oscar and her impact on the film industry. Click HERE to read my full interview!

Arthur Miller writes George Cukor a telegraph about Marilyn

George Cukor.jpg

“I just wanted to thank you for the way you have behaved toward Marilyn. The picture, of course, is important to her and to you, but immeasurably more important are the precious days and weeks of her life which your patience and skill and understanding have made humanly meaningful for her. I have never known her so happy at work, so hopeful for herself, so prepared to cast away the worst of her doubts. You must know now some of the reasons why she is so precious to me and will understand the sincerity of my respect for you. / I am at work here, but I don’t know how long I’ll be able to bear this bachelorhood.”

On Martin Edward Mortensen

 

To Hedda Hopper in 1953: “I never called myself Mortensen at any time because Mr. Mortensen was not my father. He proved that to the satisfaction of the authorities, and for that reason, he had no financial responsibility for me.”
