The first hour of this week’s show will include an encore presentation of our November 2014 conversation with Margaret O’Brien, the great child star from the Golden Age of Hollywood who went on to become one of the most popular, versatile and endearing actresses over the past seven decades, largely because of her work on stage and television. Margaret will share a few memories of her long career, including her work with such stars as Robert Young and Mickey Rooney.
The second hour will include a replay of our February 2014 conversation with Mary Ann Anderson about the life and career of Ida Lupino. Mary was the conservator for Ida’s estate during the last eleven years of the actress’ life, and became a close friend as a result. Mary’s books include Ida Lupino: Beyond the Camera, the story of Ida’s life and career (told almost entirely in Ida’s own words) and The Making of The Hitch-Hiker Illustrated, a behind-the-scenes look at the classic 1953 thriller directed by Ida Lupino that was the first American example of film noir that was directed by a woman. The hour will also include excerpts from one of the last recorded interviews given by Lupino in which she discusses her work in film and television.
Keeping with the theme of old Hollywood, this week’s show will also include an encore of our conversation with author and longtime entertainment journalist Sylvia Resnick. Sylvia began her career writing for such publications as Photoplay, Modern Screen and TV Radio Mirror before becoming a staff editor for Rona Barrett’s Hollywood.
