Monday Blips and Beeps

Hollywood biographer Allan R. Ellenberger has a new blog - it's off to a good start (...adds to bookmarks).

I'd like to salute (*censor*) all of the fine folks who jumped on ebay to sell their Charlton Heston memorabilia as soon as word made it out of his passing. I understand free markets, demand, and all that stuff, but sheesh.

Happiness is . . . having a coworker walk into your cube Monday morning to talk about a movie she watched over the weekend: Our Blushing Brides.

TCM played Lady of the Tropics last week as part of April's Hedy Lamarr film festival. I'm sorry, I couldn't make it past the 15 minute mark, even with Robert Taylor. On the flip side, TCM is showing Hedy's H.M Pulham, Esq. on April 10. One of my fav. Robert Young movies - and Bob aside - a really good story.

And speaking of Robert Taylor, Linda J. Alexander's book Reluctant Witness: Robert Taylor, Hollywood, & Communism is now out in ebook format and is coming to print in May.

Thanks for mentioning Allan Ellenberger's blog, Carrie. I have also bookmarked it.

Thanks for the heads up for the blog - and I know what you mean about the Charlton Heston eBay idiots - seriously, show a bit of respect, man!
