    My special Wednesday, April 25, interview with Director Alexa Foreman, former TCM Senior Researcher, at the iconic Larry Edmunds Bookshop on Hollywood Blvd. informed early bird pass holders and the SRO crowd about the fascinating new documentary, SCANDAL: The Trial of Mary Astor, which premiered on Friday, April 27, in Club TCM. Foreman discussed the journey of the documentary, and how TCM Host Robert Osborne's legacy helped support Foreman's project. One of Osborne's favorite films was Dodsworth, which starred Astor, Walter Huston, and Ruth Chatterton, and premiered at the second TCM Film Festival in 2011. Foreman took questions from the audience, explained how many elements of the film came together, shared her background as the Senior TCM Researcher, and her close, working relationship with the late Robert Osborne. Andrew Yang, the great-grandson of Mary Astor, was also in attendance and spoke about his connection with his great-grandmother. Sue Sue and Director Alexa Foreman at Larry Edmunds Bookshop.... Andrew Yang discussed Mary Astor's legacy and shared his recent creations, Mary Astor dolls in some of her iconic costumes from her featured films.Yang and Foreman later visited with social media fans poolside at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel to discuss SCANDAL: The Trial of Mary Astor, which made for a hectic Wednesday for the director and her crew.

    Acclaimed Actor and Activist Leonardo DiCaprio to Present Martin Scorsese with the Inaugural Robert Osborne Award at the TCM Classic Film Festival Tuesday, April 17, 2018 Turner Classic Movies (TCM) today announced that Leonardo DiCaprio will present friend and frequent collaborator Martin Scorsese with the inaugural Robert Osborne Award as part of the 2018 TCM Classic Film Festival. DiCaprio, an Academy Award-winning actor, producer, and philanthropist, has appeared in five of Scorsese’s films, beginning with 2002’s Gangs Of New York and most recently in Academy nominated 2013’s The Wolf Of Wall Street. DiCaprio will present the award to the world-renowned filmmaker for his decades-long commitment to the legacy and preservation of classic films. The award will be presented on April 26 during opening night of the Film Festival. In 1990, Scorsese established The Film Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting and preserving motion picture history. The foundation has funded the restoration of over 800 films, which are made accessible to the public globally. In addition, The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project has restored 31 films from 21 countries representing the rich diversity of world cinema. The Robert Osborne Award will be given out annually at the TCM Classic Film Festival to a recipient whose work has helped keep the cultural heritage of classic films alive and thriving for generations to come.

    Director Alexa Foreman, SCANDAL: The Trial Of Mary Astor, has been added to the guest list! Alexa Foreman has used her skills as a researcher and producer primarily at Turner Classic Movies for over 20 years, starting with the launch of the network in 1994. While there, she was an integral part of the channel earning a Peabody Award. She worked with Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz on a daily basis, and when information was needed—like how many Oscar nominations a film has earned or how many husbands Elizabeth Taylor had—she was the go-to-gal. Alexa has worked with Meryl Streep, John Gielgud, Anthony Hopkins, Lee Grant, Claire Bloom and others on assembling Star of the Month pieces, and interviewed 7 of the original Munchkins for her short documentary “Memories of Oz.” In addition, she has interviewed over 100 stars, directors, writers and editors for the TCM Archival Project. She is author of Women in Motion published in 1983, and co-author of In the Picture: Production Stills from the TCM Archives from 2004, as well as contributor to Leading Couples. She is the researcher for the new book to be published by HarperCollins in 2018, All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson. Currently she is back at TCM as a freelance researcher, and is executive producing a documentary entitled Scandal: The Trial of Mary Astor, which concerns actress Mary Astor and her 1936 fight to gain custody of her daughter. The documentary premieres at the TCM Film Festival in Los Angeles in April 2018. In attendance: SCANDAL: THE TRIAL OF MARY ASTOR

    United States Air Force Brig. Gen. Charles E. "Chuck" Yeager, retired, prepares to board an F-15D Eagle from the 65th Aggressor Squadron Oct. 14, 2012, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. DVIDSHUB Air Force legend Charles Elwood "Chuck" Yeager turned 93 this year, but don't let that milestone fool you into believing that he's too old to be tech-savvy. A couple of years ago he started to tweet about his exploits during his long flying career, which spanned more than sixty years. Here's an example: Reading General Yeager's tweets is like looking back at his life, and what an amazing life it's been. Here are a few reasons why the private who rose to become a general just might be the greatest military pilot ever. Sam Shephard played him on screen in the film, The Right Stuff. Read more about the real man who had "The Right Stuff."
