It was so very wonderful to join so many astounding classic TV and film icons last weekend at The Ray Courts Celebrity Show, which happily returned to the Burbank Marriott Hotel.
I was honored to attend the gathering to help celebrate the publication of my new book, GLAMOUR, GIDGETS AND THE GIRL NEXT DOOR: TELEVISION'S ICONIC WOMEN FROM THE 50s, 60s AND 70s, and the paperback edition of TWITCH UPON A STAR: THE BEWITCHED LIFE AND CAREER OF ELIZABERTH MONTGOMERY (both published by Taylor Trade Publishing, 2014).
It was my great privilege to give away copies of these books to those who attending who have granted the entertainment industry so many years of endless joy through their various performances, TV shows and feature films.
Those attending included the delightful Caryn Richman, star of The New Gidget TV series from the 1980s, General Hospital's legendary stars Kin Shriner and Jackie Zeman, and acting greats Don Murray (who starred alongside Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits - her final feature film), and Julie Adams (star of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and who made hundreds of guest appearances on TV shows ranging from Perry Mason to Murder, She Wrote), and countless other performances of the screen and stage).
The photos to the right of this posting tell just a little bit of a joyful story that took place the weekend of September 27 and September 27!
