  1. For folks in, around or can make their way to the San Francisco Bay Area, run do not walk to see our own Carole Cook and a galaxy of Broadway-based talent in support of and benefit for Meals on Wheels San Francisco and AIDS Legal Referral Panel. "Help" has run concurrently for years with the Southern California "equivalent" both mounted and produced by Broadway vet extraordinaire Mr. David Gallagan, who somehow manages to wrangle the famous, infamous and many who should be household names talent of Broadway and Tony-winning caliber. Sadly, for a variety of reasons understandable but frustrating, the "last" (still hoping he'll have a change of heart) LA S.T.A.G.E (Southland Theater Artists Goodwill Event) show was in 2017 and featured an amazing roster of talent including the above-referenced Miss Cook, David Burnham, Anthony Fedorov, Joely Fisher, Barrett Foa, Vicki Lewis, Jake Simpson, Sharon McNight and many, many more. "Help" in a similar vein is scheduled once again to feature a roster of Broadway caliber talent including Cook, Davis Gaines, Kimberley Locke, Valerie Pettiford, Jai Rodriguez and "Supremes" legend Mary Wilson among many, many others! Help is on the Way XXIV Concert and Gala August 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm Herbst Theatre 401 Van Ness Ave San Francisco, CA 94102 Directed by David Galligan Musical Director Michael Sobie Gala Co-chairs: Shelley Hann, Gary Snow and Darren Iverson Help is on the Way XXIV Schedule of Events: 5 pm: VIP Gala Reception: Green Room 5 pm: Silent Auction: Main Lobby 6 pm: Gala Reception: Green Room 7:30 pm: Performance: Herbst Theater 9:45 pm: Club REAF After Party with Cast: Green Room https://www.cityboxoffice.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=2344
  2. Scotty And The Secret History Of Hollywood: The Man Who Sold Sex To The Stars Our own Miss Mildred better known to one and all as Carole Cook has the briefest of cameos in the just released documentary version of the book by Scotty Bowers as one of several luminaries present as a guest at Mr. Bowers 90th birthday celebration. This fascinating doc was filmed over a period of 3 or 4 years and features a (then) still remarkably spry physically (climbing via ladder onto his roof to clear brush!) and mentally agile over 90 Bowers regaling his adventures as a young "matchmaker" (ahem) to the stars and later, bartender at Hollywood private parties and heretofore never revealed hookups of the rich and famous, in various and multiple configurations imaginable (male/male, female/female, threesomes, orgys and everything in between). Between the book and the film I'm still not 100% convinced that all the liasons portrayed actually, indisputably happened but I must say that he often makes a convincing case and is backed up by several survirvors who are not only former clients or workers of his, but best of friends to this day. If nothing else, it is very entertaining and I recommend it, at least if you go in with an open mind.

  3. https://youtu.be/YKgHB4b-wiE Looking forward to this very much, in part because there's been a notable lack of Betty lately on TV, at least on current talk shows etc. or word of her in any new projects. At 96 it's not surprising she's slowing down but...greedy as I am, I sure would love to see BW in something "new" if only a cameo as it's been much too long. Here's a cute promo for the upcoming PBS doc: https://youtu.be/YKgHB4b-wiE
  4. Oh thank you! Didn't know it was out on BD so now I'll look for it!
  5. You mean the documentary Shelly? Isn't it AMAZING! What a life and career Mr. Reilly had. Wow. Glad I got to see him do it live!

    Not sure if they are done for good, but my response is pretty much the same as the last time this came up:
  7. Are these episodes on DVD?

    Thank you too (insert your real name)! If you happen to stumble upon a good source (DVD etc.) for the Ann Sothern episode, please post it here!

    LOVE that she inscribed it "My Love Always, Lucy"!
  9. Are these episodes on DVD?

    There's this MAHVELOUS little world called Amazon(.com) where you can often find the most of obscure of goodies, not that two of these three are all that "obscure", as they're readily available there, along with no doubt several other places, both brick & mortar (less and less, unfortunately) and primarily, online like Barnes & Noble, Second Spin, eBay and many many more. "Lucy Upsets the Williams Household" is on the Season 6 DVD release of MRFD. Here's the link to it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Make-Room-Daddy-Season-6/dp/B000X73NEK/ref=pd_sim_74_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000X73NEK&pd_rd_r=02RJ5VY1RRG7P6GCGKW5&pd_rd_w=v5IDK&pd_rd_wg=DksPK&psc=1&refRID=02RJ5VY1RRG7P6GCGKW5 "Make Room for Granddaddy - Lucy and the Lecher " is one of the many glorious bonus features on the Season 3 "Here's Lucy" DVD released by MPI Home video, and produced by my GAB Guys George Ridjaneck, and Garret Boyajian. This can be found as a single season release or in the compiled "box set" of all six seasons in one collection, containing all the same features and bonuses as the original releases so no, there's no extra "bonus" disc if you buy the box over the single seasons but it is nice to have them all collected together in one box...and if I may say, any true, die-hard Lucy fan should own all six of these HL seasons (or the complete box) as they're WUNDAFULLY restored, look glorious, are not syndicated edited versions and the bonus features are amazing, containing a lot of rare stuff seen no where else... check 'em out! Complete Series: https://www.amazon.com/Heres-Lucy-Complete-Lucille-Ball/dp/B00GS08Z9E/ref=sr_1_3?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1528561552&sr=1-3&keywords=here's+lucy+complete+series+dvd Season 3 only: https://www.amazon.com/Heres-Lucy-Season-Lucille-Ball/dp/B003CJXJ4A/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1528561611&sr=1-1&keywords=here's+lucy+series+dvd+season+3 As for the Ann Sothern Show, that's proving a bit trickier to find. I know I've seen it, I don't think I ever got it and it may or may not be on one of the many public domain releases of TASS/Priviate Secretary but I can't at the moment locate one that has this episode on it. I wouldn't be surprised however to find it on YouTube and/or other online resources, I need to keep looking as I'd love a good copy of that myself. Happy Shopping!
  10. Unfortunate Lucy Products (continued)

    Right?? When you see the individual photos highlighting the eyes, etc. it's pretty amazing and incredible, in a good way......until they get to the mouth & teeth! What the hell??? A little too "horsey" to be lifelike. Pity, as it's an otherwise noble ("nubel"?) effort....although...isn't this just a bit creepy?? I don't think I'd want to keep it around, especially if I were to wake late one night and stumble across it in the dark!
  11. CBS revives Murphy Brown

    Can't wait!

    Indeed, always a highlight of every annual show. When the curtain went up -- she would remain seated given her advanced age -- the house would go nuts and the standing ovation would go on seemingly forever. I miss those one-of-a-kind annual events. The amassed talent onstage was staggering.
  13. No I Love Lucy Superstar Special for 2018?

    Indeed! Great idea boss!
  14. Can't WAIT to see this so I hope going pans out. I have just two words after reading the roster of stars who appear in the film: Woody Allen??!!
