“Forgotten Hollywood”- Fireworks at L&H Convention!

Posted on May 22, 2014 by raideoman1 | No Comments

Manny P. here…

   I’ve been invited to attend the 19th International Sons of the Desert Convention taking place on the week leading up to Independence Day. This world-wide tribute to Laurel and Hardy is annually the largest gathering of folks who are fans of Golden Age cinema generally, and of the comedy team in particular.


   I’ll be spending the 4th of July at the Dealer’s Room in the Mezzanine Level of the Loews Hollywood Hotel. This is the exact location I spend Labor Day Weekend for the CINECON Film Festival. Based on my previous association with folks who attend local Tents of the Sons of the Desert, this should be a fun event. The demographic makeup of the attendees are exactly the kind of people who will enjoy copies of my Forgotten Hollywood Book Series.

   I expect to spend all day (10a – 6p) at this exciting confab autographing my paperbacks! For more info about the 19th International Sons of the Desert Convention, click on the link below:

   Sophia Loren is still as glamorous as ever. The 79-year-old actress wowed throngs of crowds with her beauty and sophistication this week at Cannes.

   She is the guest of honor at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and delivered a masterclass in addition to attending events. The actress wore a sparkling, champagne-colored gown to the Tuesday screening.

   Loren won an Oscar for her dramatic role in Two Women in 1961.        SOPHIA LOREN
