Thanks, again, Wallace. I am sure the intrepid TCM archival team is at least acquainted with this series. As to your suggestion for incorporation into the film festival, your idea sounds like a good topic for a Club TCM Panel discussion.

This year's final schedule hasn't yet been posted, and I am definitely hoping we will have updated announcements coming this week, but your suggestion might be too late for TCMFF 2016. Maybe your idea might be incorporated into TCMFF 2017.

Thank you so much for your reply, I don't believe  that TCM is aware or has any of this material though I could be very wrong but i've been told that attempts to contact  TCM about this have been made but so far  no luck. I'd like to see this these resurrected because if you know the series it's a who's who of old Hollywood and I've just received  Richard Lamparski's  the author of the series  who is still with us contact info ( letter mailed today).    These recording are housed at Pacific Radio Archives and they deserve a home and rediscovery  people like us  and so many others who have a true appreciation for them will hear memories that really will take you back to another era, and for some this was the only time their voices were heard.

 

Yesterday  I listened to Dorothy Davenport talk about her husband Wallace Reid so you can understand my interest but her reminiscing  what early Hollywood was like was trip through time.  Don't mean to be over passionate but any help, thoughts, ideas from you or members of this board is greatly appreciated.

Wallace, the "Whatever Became" series by Richard Lamparski might already be a part of the TCM Archival Project, but I am unfamiliar with the radio series as well as all the documents, videos, and interviews catalogued in the TCM archives.. That is a good question, obviously.

I came across this radio archive  website that has the What Ever Became series by Richard Lamparski. Never given the credit for his series he did what Kevin Brownlow did for Hollywood by publishing and recording well know & obscure silent, sound stars and entertainers while they were still alive. Some of these recording are the only sound of their voices since they never appeared in sound films.  I know that Brownlow's series ( yet to be released on DVD) is one of the most amazing and informative programs on Hollywood, but these recordings should see the light of day and as a classic film fan it would really be something to have them somehow incorporated into the TCM Film Festivals or at least as a program on TCM when one of these stars movies are being shown.  The stars that are represented here from Mary Miles Minter to so many others  forgotten about all together.  It would really be something to have these recordings rediscovered, anyway let me know what you all think and wouldn't this add to the excellent programing TCM already has?
