“Forgotten Hollywood”- The First Major Event of 2016…

   2016 will officially start with a last trip to the 1920s. Downton Abbey is beginning its final journey on Sunday as a mini-series. Part of Masterpiece on PBS, Julian Fellowes has not ruled out a future motion picture, or an update to the program in the future. The exploits of the Crawley family and their servants  have captured the imagination of home viewers around the world. Quality television is something to be cherished.

   Needless to say, I have been a loyal fan since Season One, and have enjoyed every episode a number of times. I also love the backstory additions that have been produced over the years, which share intimate tidbits about Highclere Castle (the very real home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, and the set for many of the interior and exterior scenes), the manners, the fashion, and the gossip that is Downton Abbey.


   All of England is already having withdrawals from losing its popular program, since it has already aired across the pond to completion during the Fall of 2015. I plan on soaking in the entire season beginning this Sunday. When it crashes to its impending conclusion, I will mourn its loss.

He had a small supporting role in the 1967 movie, Cool Hand Luke. He finally was a regular panel member on the Fox News Channel stock program Cashin’ In, as a result of having built a lucrative career as an investor, investment strategist and adviser, and money manager. He was also head of Wayne Rogers & Co., a stock trading investment corporation.
