Manny P. here…


   BARNES & NOBLE has placed Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History in many of their stores from coast-to-coast. The results are staggering…

   Here’s a preliminary list:

~ CALIFORNIA – Glendale / Huntington Beach / Long Beach (2) / Santa Monica Studio City / Orange / Thousand Oaks

~ NEW YORK – 5th Ave / Broadway / Downtown Manhattan (2) / Union Square

   Thirteen locations increases my overall total to 20!

   Thank you B&N


   Phyllis Thaxter was a pretty leading lady on Broadway and Hollywood. While at MGM, she appeared in Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, The Sea of GrassBewitched, and Blood on the Moon. She moved to Warner Brothers, and co-starred in Jim Thorpe All American, and Fort Worth. She also had small roles in The World of Henry Orient and Superman (1978), playing Clark Kent’s ma.

   On television, she guest starred on Wagon Train, RawhideAlfred Hitchcock Presents, and The Twilight Zone. She resembled Teresa Wright, and received the same type of parts  over her career.

   Her father was a member of the Maine Supreme Court. She worked steadily, despite an affliction with mild polio in the 1950s. Her friendship with Montgomery Clift was legendary.

   Phyllis Thaxter was 90, when she died on Tuesday.

Until next time>                              “never forget”
