I know you're not a fan of this particular series. But, if it spurs more interest in old Hollywood scandals and mysteries, that would increase the odds of such a movie being made. And maybe you'll like that one.
I would be very interested in how such a movie would handle her demise.
I grew up watching What's My Line on television every Sunday night. As a child, Dorothy Kilgallen became a kind of a role model for me. Everyone knew about her Showbiz column, but she was truly a legitimate journalist who in the last months of her life was seriously researching the assassination of President Kennedy.
A movie about her life would be interesting, not just in terms of her as an individual, but also in terms of how a woman in 1950s and 60's maneuvered her life in that kind of a public professional position.
You honestly had to have lived in the 1950's to know just how strait- jacketed women and minorities were in the American society at that time.
Dorothy Kilgallen's life was truly extraordinary for her era.
Last December legal analyst Mark Shaw released a book called:
The Reporter Who Knew Too Much: The Mysterious Death of What's My Line TV Star and Media Icon Dorothy Kilgallen.
Apparently Shaw has come up with new information regarding this 50 years plus mystery and it would make a fine TV movie - - I have yet to read the book.
