Manny P. here…
It’s been a long time coming. Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History has reached a confirmed 20% of inventory sold. While it’s true, we frankly reached this figure a while ago (due to sales at Costco, Borders, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc.), I can’t claim purchases until the revenue actually reaches my doorstep. In other words, I only count dollars personally collected.
Fittingly, the official 500th milestone came from an initial supporter of my work: The Paley Center for Media. Their gift shop let me know by mail in the form of a check. My paperback was their first foray into Hollywood cinema, since Paley has long specialized in classic radio and TV. Let me personally thank Gary Browning and his staff for helping make my book a success. Browning had the vision and insight to see its possibilities.
If you would like to visit this remarkable museum, their address is 465 N. Beverly Dr. in the heart of Beverly Hills. This modern venue is home to extraordinary footage and information from radio and television’s Golden Era.
Once again, a big THANK YOU to the Paley Center for Media!
Until next time> “never forget”
