Overall, I had a great time in Burbank at the Hollywood Collectors Show. Hung out with cool McFarland and Co. marketing guy Adam. Got to meet and chat with George Chakiris (Bernardo of West Side Story) who looks absolutely great. He is 70 but looks 50! He is the only celebrity signed photo that I purchased though I came close to buying a pic from Laurene Landon of All the Marbles fame. She was very movie star glamorous all in lavendar. But she could not out diva Miss Julie Newmar who always arrived late and left early. Suffice it to say, she had a line of autograph seekers each day and I was only able to ogle her from afar.
One of the high points was walking into the Virgin Megastore on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood and seeing my books on display. Being the ham that I am I had my loyal boyfriend Ern snap a pic (see above). Note the book Italian Horror Film Directors is by my good friend Louis Paul. Visit his web site for more info.
