Mary Astor’s Summer Under The Stars Celebration is today on TCM!!

 

This is the perfect day to remember Director Alexa Foreman and her documentary, Scandal: The Trial of Mary Astor and that special Wednesday, April 25, 2018, interview at Larry Edmunds Bookstore. Thanks to Andrew Yang, Mary Astor's great-grandson for attending this exciting event, Larry Edmunds Bookshop, Linda Wiegman who took the interview photos, and all the fans who made the Wednesday interview and the Club TCM Screening two SRO events.

"Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years" by Julie Andrews with Emma Walton Hamilton debuts Oct. 15.

"Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years" by Julie Andrews with Emma Walton Hamilton debuts Oct. 15. (Photo: Courtesy Hachette Books)

The hills are alive, again. 

Julie Andrews is reliving her Hollywood beginnings in a new memoir, "Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years" (out Tuesday and co-written with Andrews' daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton).

The book spans from her first days in Los Angeles with 1964's "Mary Poppins" roughly through 1995 – which means no tell-all tales of her more recent experiences working in the "Shrek," "Princess Diaries" or "Despicable Me" franchises. 

But all the stage and screen icon's greatest hits are mentioned, including two that started it all and landed Andrews, now 84, her first Oscar win and subsequent nomination: "Mary Poppins" (for which she won best actress at the 1965 Academy Awards) and "The Sound of Music."

For more of the USA Today article, look here.

Join Julie Andrews as a TCM Guest Programmer on October 29 for screenings of Thoroughly Modern Millie, Victor/Victoria, and The Americanization of Emily.

DENNIS MILLER AND FRIENDS - FRIDAYS IN NOVEMBER


Comic/political pundit Dennis Miller hosts four nights of films with a few of his good friends serving as co-hosts: Martin Short, Rita Wilson, Jay Leno and Dana Carvey. The chosen films are mostly comedies of one type or another, although a handful of dramas and fantasy films are thrown in for good measure. More here.
 
Dennis Miller also introduced The Opposite Sex, one of my favorite guilty pleasure films at the #TCMFF this year with Illeana Douglas!

Letters from Hollywood: Inside the Private World of Classic American Moviemaking

lettersfromhollywood_bk_100x148_09202019

By Rocky Lang and Barbara Hall

Foreword by Peter Bogdanovich

Rare notes, memos, and telegrams from Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, Jane Fonda, and more

Letters from Hollywood reproduces in full color scores of entertaining and insightful pieces of correspondence from some of the most notable and talented film industry names of all time--from the silent era to the golden age, and up through the pre-email days of the 1970s. Culled from libraries, archives, and personal collections, the 135 letters, memos, and telegrams are organized chronologically and are annotated by the authors to provide backstories and further context. While each piece reveals a specific moment in time, taken together, the letters convey a bigger picture of Hollywood history. Contributors include celebrities like Greta Garbo, Alfred Hitchcock, Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, Elia Kazan, Cary Grant, Francis Ford Coppola, Tom Hanks, and Jane Fonda. This is the gift book of the season for fans of classic Hollywood.


Rocky Lang is an author who has produced, written, and directed motion pictures, documentaries, and television programs. Barbara Hall is a film historian and researcher who has worked as an archivist at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Writers Guild Foundation, and the Art Directors Guild. They both live in Los Angeles.

 
And the latest in sports news:
World Series Game 7 tonight from Minute Maid Park in Houston!
