“`Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson has received one of Britain’s highest awards from Prince William — and thought about giving him a kiss at the Buckingham Palace ceremony. Dame Emma was honored in recognition for her splendid career, and it was presented to her by William, a longtime friend. And she wore sneakers to the event.

“`Emma was named for the female equivalent of a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honors List in June. The citation calls her one of Britain’s most versatile and celebrated actresses. She plans to use the honor to focus attention on the plight of poor children who don’t get adequate food during school holidays.

“`Her long list of film roles includes favorites like The Remains of the Day. She received the Academy Award for Best Actress for Howard’s End, and an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for Sense and Sensibility.

“`On a personal note, my new literary work, Road to Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, has a chapter that features notable Hollywood actresses named as Dames during the Studio Era — Wendy Hiller and Judith Anderson. My latest paperback is available on Amazon.


“`By the way, you can find my new book in its second repository:  New York Public Library. Historian has often cited the location — One of the four finest libraries in the nation. Also in Margaret Herrick Library at the  Academy of Motion Picture Arts and SciencesRoad to Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History  resides at two prestigious resource centers.
