   John Huston, Frank Capra, Billy Wilder, and John Ford will be the legendary directors honored in 2012 by the U.S. Postal Service. These fine filmmakers were responsible for the creation of great cinema during Hollywood’s Golden Age. Here is just a sample of their extraordinary work:

* John Huston The Maltese Falcon, Treasure of the Sierra Madre,

* Frank Capra – It Happened One Night, Meet John Doe, It’s a Wonderful Life

* John Ford – How Green was My Valley, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

* Billy Wilder Sunset Boulevard, Stalag 17, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment

   Of course, they made far more motion pictures. But, this representative offering is a compelling reason for their individual honor.



   I belong to a new site promoting my Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History book tour schedule. It’s called EventFul. It will replace Book Tour.com. This site has announced its closure on September 1st, which is a shame. I wish the employees who currently work at the latter site all the best.

Here are two links to the new site:
