“`I was pleased to recently find out that Maggie Seven Wellman is a fan of my award-winning Forgotten Hollywood blog site and a repeat visitor to watch my interviews on the Celebrating Act 2 podcast. According to her bio:

Margaret (Maggie) Seven Wellman is the youngest child of veteran film director William A. Wellman, and Busby Berkeley dancer and actor, Dorothy Coonan. Raised in Hollywood on a rambling ranch-style estate built in 1944, her childhood memories of family are inescapably entwined in the rooms and landscape on Barrington Avenue, the subject of her first memoir.

 In 1983, she retired from the motion picture business and moved to Ojai, California to raise a family. While there, Ms. Wellman has worked as a photographer, a technology coordinator for the local public elementary school, and acted as executive director for the Ojai Film Festival in 2005-2006.

“`As an actress, she co-starred in The Harrad Experiment and Rancho Deluxe. On television, she has guest-starred in The Partridge Family, The Streets of San Francisco and McMillan and Wife.

“`A couple of years back, I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with her older brother,  William Wellman Jr. at the Cinecon film fest. Their pa was the iconic cinematic director of Wings, The Ox-Bow Incident, The Story of G. I. JoeThe Public Enemy, BattlegroundBeau Geste, Nothing Sacred, and The High and the Mighty.  He also co-wrote and directed the 1937 adaptation of A Star is Born, and it earned him a very well-deserved Best Screenplay Academy Award.    William A. Wellman and Maggie Wellman –>

“`I am thrilled Maggie Wellman is a cherished follower of the Forgotten Hollywood journey.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
