Re: All About Ava Gardner with Kendra Bean & Anthony Uzarowski on 7/29 & 7/30

Thanks for your reply. Did Gardner's marriages help her or hurt? Reading about the way that things unfolded during her marital adventures, she seems to have had no idea how to build a relationship. Was that Hollywood's doing or did she simply feel too restless? Rooney and she don't appear to have b...

Re: All About Ava Gardner with Kendra Bean & Anthony Uzarowski on 7/29 & 7/30

Hi, Kendra and Anthony. Many thanks for talking to us on the Oasis. Can you tell us something about Ava's experience on Show Boat. Her own singing voice wasn't heard , but her recordings survived. I love her in MOGAMBO . Did she enjoy working with Clark Gable? P.S. I'm from Scotland. We sometimes h...

Re: All About Ava Gardner with Kendra Bean & Anthony Uzarowski on 7/29 & 7/30

As I reviewed the acknowledgements section, it's amazing how much cooperation you had from so many libraries, agencies, and previous biogaphers of Ava. If you feel you can share with us here, do you mind revealing what interviews that you conducted revealed information that you'd not encountered be...

Thanks so much, Kendra. I can't wait to read what Anthony's response. It seems that Anthony shares your enthusiasm for the new Ava book. Can you also share some of the difficulties you encountered trying to secure some of the images you wanted? What factors ultimately drove some of your decisions? ...

Re: Welcome Author Phillip Done August 8-10!

Hi Phillip! I read your book on the plane ride home from Atlanta in June and enjoyed it very much. Well done! I have two questions, actually. The first concerns archival research. I was living in London while I wrote my Vivien Leigh book, so I know the frustration of not being able to be in multiple...

Re: Welcome to Kendra Bean, Our Guest Author on 10/18 & 10/21

Hi Kendra I hope I'm not to late I wonder if you agree with me that Viiven sacrficed her film career in odrer to support her husband, Larry Olivier as actor Manager of the Old Vic Theater Company. IMO she was a far better film actor than him, despite the fact she made so little movies and he made s...

Re: Welcome to Kendra Bean, Our Guest Author on 10/18 & 10/21

Vivien very much wanted to star in a film version of Macbeth opposite Olivier. They had performed the play in stage in 1955 and afterward tried to get a film off the ground. Olivier even wrote a script for it, but unfortunately they couldn't secure the funding. By then their marriage was sadly comi...

Re: Welcome to Kendra Bean, Our Guest Author on 10/18 & 10/21

Again, many thanks, Kendra, for continuing with us. Can you tell us anything about Notley Abbey? Have you ever visited it? I understand Vivien, though she may not have been maternally inclined, loved her home and entertaining guests there. I wondered whether you had been there personally. Also, thi...

Re: Welcome to Kendra Bean, Our Guest Author on 10/18 & 10/21

I'm positively drooling at the idea of a MacBeth film starring those two. It's a shame it never got off the ground. Ms. Bean, can you tell me a little about Vivien's acting process? Have you found out anything about how she prepared for her roles? I know from reading that she was very much a propon...

Re: Welcome to Kendra Bean, Our Guest Author on 10/18 & 10/21

Thank you very much for being here and answering our questions, Kendra! It's been fascinating. May I ask which of Vivien's films is your favorite? My favorite films of Vivien's are Gone With the Wind, Waterloo Bridge, That Hamilton Woman, Sidewalks of London , and Streetcar . I'd add Anna Karenina ...

Welcome Kendra, I'm so cheered that a new book on Vivien coming out, I already have Alexander Walker's, Hugo Vickers and my favourite the Angus McBean coffee table book. She's my favourite actress too and I would have loved to have watched her on stage but will have to content myself with her films...

Re: Welcome to Kendra Bean, Our Guest Author on 10/18 & 10/21

Dear Ms. Bean, Your book is truly beautiful -- thank you for all your hard work in putting it together. I am wondering if you had to cut out information about Dark Journey at the last minute. It's listed in the index as being discussed on pages 28-29 but those pages instead have illustrations. If t...
