That makes audio versions of five (5) of my one-person plays currently in production. The other four are (Clark) GABLE, (Carole) LOMBARD, (Spencer) TRACY and (Basil) RATHBONE.
It's a bit of a juggling act for me, but (hopefully) all five will be…

Lana Turner speaking in my play, LANA & JOHNNY WERE LOVERS:
"Do you know that Barbara Stanwyck still refuses to talk to me? I’m not sure if it’s because she thinks I broke up her marriage to Bob Taylor, which I didn’t, or because I was a better villainess in THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE than she was in DOUBLE INDEMNITY."…

I am pleased to announce ROBINSON & RAFT, the second of two (2) new stage plays in THE HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS collection.
Edward G. Robinson (LITTLE CAESAR) and George Raft (SCARFACE) may have been Hollywood's premier "tough guys," but off-screen they were totally unalike...and their personalities often clashed. Robinson was a man of culture, who owned a magnificent art…
