HOLLYWOOD SNAPSHOTS: The Forgotten Interviews

Here is the official press release for my new book, HOLLYWOOD SNAPSHOTS: The Forgotten Interviews.
 
 
Albany, Ga. – BearManor Media announces the release of Hollywood Snapshots The Forgotten Interviews by Michael B. Druxman.
Back in the 1970s and early 1980s, Michael B. Druxman authored several books and stage plays about Hollywood, the movies, and the people that made them. He also wrote a monthly column for Coronet magazine, “Yesterday at the Movies.”
In researching these works, Druxman interviewed dozens of performers, producers, directors, screenwriters, composers, and other film folk, who were a part of Hollywood’s “Golden Era.”
Rediscover the author’s columns for Coronet as they originally appeared in the magazine, along with excerpts from Druxman’s recently rediscovered interview notes for his books, columns, and stage plays, including many eye-opening comments that never made print. These notes are made public here for the first time.
Subjects of the magazine interviews include Claire Trevor, Jack Oakie, Paul Henreid, Ann Miller, John Carradine, Howard Keel, Mary Pickford, Gale Sondergaard, David Janssen, Yvonne DeCarlo, and several members of The Little Rascals/Our Gang films.
Among the book interview subjects are directors Edward Dmytryk, Herb Ross, George Sidney, George Sherman, Gordon Douglas, Raoul Walsh, Howard Hawks, Mervyn LeRoy, Arthur Hiller; composers Jule Styne, Paul Francis Webster, John Green; actors George Burns, Betty Garrett, Dan O’Herlihy, Charles “Buddy” Rogers, and many others.
The forgotten interviews are no longer forgotten.

Black Jesus (1968) Isn’t What You Think It Is

To view Black Jesus click here. I’d honestly be shocked if more than a handful of people around here have heard of Black Jesus (1968) before today. Barely released in American theaters by one-shot outfit Plaza Pictures and never given a legitimate home video release (ignore the bootleg DVDs), this is a rough, tough and […]

Summer Daze: Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953)

To view Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday click here. The first screen appearance of Jacques Tati’s Hulot character is inside of a car: a clattering, jittering wreck making its way to a seaside hotel in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953). Tati cuts from the sound of a train horn to the pitter-putter of Hulot’s gasping car engine as it turns the corner […]
