    Hedda Hopper Film Festival on TCM

    If you would have told me when I started to study films that I would actually be paying money to see a Hedda Hopper Film Festival, I would have said you were crazy. But that's exactly what I'm doing tonight. The life of Hedda Hopper in connection with the Hollywood film industry is exciting. She was wonderful playing herself in Sunset Boulevard and I'm a big fan of her son in Perry Mason. I've got nothing against her. But I just can't imagine how hard up this cable channel must be to Market their product in this way. But I guess this was one of their marketing specialist's bright ideas. Hedda Hopper never would have become a gossip columnist if she'd been successful as an actress. There's so many other more, should we say talented, Hollywood artists that they could feature in such a manner; but I guess Hedda does have a bit of a name with some of the old- timers. Well, what's the next Film Festival going to be ?- - The films of actors and actresses treated for venereal disease by Docky, Dr. Henry Martin, the husband of rival gossip columnist Louella Parsons? You know, I think that might get some audience response and be a little fun. Anyway, I feel as though there's nothing wrong necessarily with these films that she appears in, but there's gotta be a better way to organize it than this. Somehow I get the feeling we haven't scrape the bottom of the barrel yet.
