On Demand Episode of the week

May 13 - June 2 2019

Hollywood Legends Encore

Movie Addict HQ presents Hollywood Legends Encore as our On Demand show. During this popular episode, co-authors Joan Kramer and David Heeley discuss In the Company of Legends, their behind-the-scenes book about the movie star documentaries they worked together on, including their award-winning profiles of Fred Astaire, Spencer Tracy, Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Paul Newman, Judy Garland, Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda.


This dynamic duo established a reputation for finding the un-findable, persuading the reluctant, and maintaining unique relationships long after the end credits rolled. This should be a must-hear episode for movie fans! Listeners can hear this vintage show at any time during the week by clicking on the link at the end of this article.


The late great Robert Osborne, famous host of Turner Classic Movies, described In the Company of Legends “one of the best reasons ever for curling up with a book,” and talk show host Dick Cavett says the Kramer/Heeley memoir is “so hard to put down I ate with one hand while reading it.” Osborne praised the book because it’s about “dazzling personalities and told by people who actually knew the celebrities they write about, worked with them and, further, socialized with them, aware of their foibles and strengths from first-hand knowledge, not hearsay.”


Among the Kramer and Heeley documentaries are: Katharine Hepburn: All About Me; Bacall on Bogart; The John Garfield Story; The Adventures of Errol Flynn; The Spencer Tracey Legacy; James Stewart: A Wonderful Life; Fonda on Fonda; Fred Astaire: Puttin’ on His Top Hat; Fred Astaire: Change Partners and Dance. Don’t miss this revealing and fascinating discussion with two insiders who worked with some of your favorite classic film stars.

More Detailed Description:
Filmmaker Misha Zubarev and cast members discuss CAKE: A Love Story, the award-winning short film based on It Had To Be Us, a romantic memoir Betty Jo Tucker and her husband Larry wrote under the pen names of Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence. Zubarev, co-director/writer of the movie plans to reveal why he undertook this particular project and how the film differs from the book. Debra Lord Cooke and Richard Vernon, who play Elizabeth and Harry, have agreed to talk about what it was like bringing these characters to life on screen. Plus, George Bettinger and Nancy Lombardo, who portray Elizabeth’s friends, have been invited to join in the discussion. The film’s plot focuses on how two people rediscover their lost love after being divorced and estranged from each other for almost 20 years.
