  1. a quick up date..[02] months after i met with ms.charisse-martin at her residence in the beverly hills,calif area. I decided to write her a thank you note and deliver her a HUGE bouquet of lillies @assorted flowers. For nearly two hours i constructed a letter as i sipped on a cup of tea and sandwich in brentwood,calif. Then i drove to the best florist in the area and selected the flowers i felt that resembled her personality and performances the most. I delivered the assortment to the security detail and i was asked if i would like to hand deliver them personally?? I declined because i value her privacy and that of her spouse mr. martin. Not to mention alot of hollywoods great stars prefer not to recieve uninvited guests...i just wanted to remember her from the movies as a little girl and adult. The young gal who sat in and listened as she recalled her glamourous days at M.G.M studios..besides i knew it wouldn't take long before i would weep...I did speak with my friend about my choked up tears..he replied"thank god you didn't ball in front of me..!!!" By the way the book should be in print about the still living musical stars from mgm era..inconjunction with the william morris agency...
  2. I wanted to say how much of a fan that i was of the late ms.judy garland. I appreciate her more now that i work in show bizness..here in hollywood,calif. This is a tuff ,long grind and a very lonely field. I wish she could have found the nuturing support team that every dancer,singer,actress so needs in this town. She was an outstanding vocalist,actress and performer. I have many of her old lp's,viewed her films,documentaries and read many books that are out of print from the 1950"s. Thanks to the salvation army stores i frequented in orlando,fla..during the 1990's. My past b-day i was given an l.p.that she signed from the "ms.show business"album.it's even been authenticated. I wouldn't part with this l.p not even if her daughter miss liza minnelli begged me. I pray that oneday ms.garlands life will turn into a major musical on broadway..like that of the late burlesque queen..miss gypsy rose lee..even though broadway is fickle..these days..
  3. last fall in 2005...a pal approached me that he was conducting an interview..in that interview he would be speaking to a lady for an upcoming book. Well he briefly quized me about my style of dance,..my influences and my earlier training. I told him that next to the late elanore powell,ann miller,kathryn dunham that there was only one lady..that taught me..that i observed her every move,technique and style..that was ms.cyd charisse...not to bore you all. i sat in on the interview and after it was conducted. We taken pictures..then i finally had the courage to tell her that im a entertainer...and she was my teacher..She was very touched..as i choked back on my tears. trying not to embarrass my friend or myself. then my friend rushed me out of her lovely home that she shares with her husband mr. tony martin. If my friend hadn't rushed me we could have stayed for a spell discussing old hollywood..if i die tomorrow at least i know ive met the second most important person who has influenced me in my life.
  4. hello my name is gigi and i work in the entertainment industry..i saw your post and wanted to say that im a big fan of the late actor mr. orson wells..what a director..and actor in the old studio system. He stood up against those and his career may have suffered but at least he left a legacy of footage behind. I assume he was married to ms. rita hayward in his life? They should have had a child..i've been afan of tcm since the 1990's..as well as amc..except those annoying commercials....well keep the faith and keep watching tcm..
  5. I have been watching old films from the studio system,independent producers since i was a little girl in 1976. Many of those films and entertainers were the driving force that convinced me that i should do something in show biz. Now that i've arrived and carving out my niche in show biz.Im very dissappointed for two reasons that the industry that i adored as a little girl no longer exist here in hollywood,calif. Second the children,grandchildren of the great film stars of the 1930-1960's have abandoned their thrones. I was very fortunate to meet and befriend the son of THE KING OF HOLLYWOOD..the late clark gable. the son who was born after he passed away..we talked at length about my knowledge of the old guard. He said todays hollywood has no interest in children of old film stars of yester-year..alot of todays actors,actresses wouldn't make it today if the hayes code was still in affect..and if the studios weren't owned by a bunch of greedy bizness men who don't have a clue about film making,grooming stars to be and censoring the over saturated media...
