Manny P. here…

   Los Angeles-based KNX 10-70 AM has invited me to historic Culver City to discuss the  legacy of MGM Studios on Friday at 2:15p. It’s part of their KNX on the Corner promotion.

   I’ll be chatting with news anchors, Diane Thompson and Chris Sedens, about MGM’s story. Among the expected topics of conversation:

*Manhattan Melodrama – The last picture ever watched by a gangster

* The Wizard of Oz – How Frank Morgan got the title role in the film

* The King & Queen of 1930s Hollywood – Clark Gable and former Culver City resident (???)

* The #1 Box-Office draw of the 1940s post-World War II era (???)

* That’s EntertainmentMGM’s epitaph

   I’ll also be sharing stories from my Forgotten Hollywood Book Series. If you live in Southern California, tune in for this nostalgic interview about Hollywood’s greatest movie lot during its Golden Age…
