On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Gloria Swanson Saga, Part One

Yes that is Marie Provost, and Buster's wife was Natalie, and she was not a bigger star than Norma or Constance. Love the series, but hey, I can out film nerd all y'all. :)

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: That Divine Gary Cooper

Where oh where did you get that intercourse-y quote from Lupe? I've been a classic movie/star aficionado for nearly half a century, devouring books and old fan magazines since I was 10, but you dig up great fresh stuff that makes my heart squeal.

Where do you get this fantastic stuff?!?

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Unspoken Tragedy of Natalie Wood

Great piece! I have to add 3 of my big Natalie Wood memories:
1) Seeing "This Property is Condemned" on TV when I was 10 and basing my entire personality on her character for the next 10 years.
2) As a teen, reading a 70s Cosmo article where the lead said she had eyes to make a man's groin ache and I've been sad to be saddled with non-groin-ache-inducing-eyes ever since.
3. She and William Devane were super hot in the TV remake of "From Here to Eternity".
