J. Ashley Hyman,
I remember this TV show as one barely in his teens and recall the big
promotion given to legendary Marion Davies appearing on this show
looking wonderful and as a real movie star should. I also recall Hedda
Hopper's great friend Lucille Ball appearing on this show; (Ball and
Hopper were lifelong friends and Lucille Ball either bought or
inherited Hopper's Rolls Royce after the columnist died. I found this
show enjoyable and frankly was so young I did not recall all the major
stars and the import they had on the Industry such as Gary Cooper or
filmmakers such as Walt Disney This TV show combined the great (Cooper
and Ms Ball) the Popular (Stephen Boyd, a Hedda Hopper favorite) and
the old ( Ms. Davies) and the young ( Venetia Stevenson who after this
show quit the business) This is a show I definitely would now
appreciate more in particular seeing Gloria Swanson ( who can forget
the fadeout of Sunset Blvd with Hopper in the sequence)?
