    Martin & Louella – Exactly how I feel about Los Angeles and specifically Hollywood = how could they?! I’m new here (posting) but have been enjoying your enthralling pictures and comments for awhile now. I cherish this site and you both just as I cherish old Hollywood and the movies as they used to be. If there really is such a thing as previous lives, I have no doubt I was around in the Golden Age of Hollywood and movie-making in some form. I’m certainly an old soul for sure. Great finding this wonderful site and feel such a kinship with people who share my love for the good old days! Thank you – Jean

    • Hello Jean and thanks for stopping by. I’m glad to know that you’ve been enjoying my various musings and postings, along with Louella’s reminiscing — she lived the live that I can only dream and research and write about. I feel I lived a life back then, too – perhaps we crossed paths! If you’re into old Hollywood you might enjoy my novels as well as my interview with Louella, who was the niece of gossip columnist, Louella Parsons. You can find both of them on this site.

    Hi there – Will certainly look into your novels and yes, I enjoyed your interview with Louella very much. She certainly did live the life and during the times we love. Interesting finding out that she is named after her aunt whose old columns I’ve read whenever I have come across them. I have a vintage magazine she devoted to Jean Harlow who is my #1 movie star. And yes, I’ve searched your site for Harlow material haha! Thank you for all your hard work researching photos and articles and such – they are very sincerely appreciated! Jean
