A few Blogs ago, I posted a link to a New York Times story about The Hollywood Collectors Show. Through the grapevine I heard that some of the celebrities were unhappy with the story because some of it focused on the money they made from selling their autographs. I disagree and as someone who has attended and participatd in these autograph conventions felt it was very insightful and respectful unlike other pieces that have been written over the years.
Below is Miss Julie Newmar’s online response to the article:
Clever story… but you missed the real story, NY Times. It’s about what the public gives back to us in love and appreciation for our flesh and blood interpretations of their fantasies.
