Hollywood’s Golden Age is reaping the benefits of the Oscar ceremony in a variety of global ways. Here are a couple of examples:
~ To memorialize the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death, organizers of the Cannes Film Festival will honor the iconic actress by placing photo of her on the official poster at this year’s event. The promotional piece will show Norma Jean blowing out a candle on a birthday cake.
The 65th Cannes Film Festival runs May 16th to the 27th. Now, that’s quite a special week with Marilyn!
~ The Hollywood Show in Burbank is reuniting all seven Von Trapp Children from The Sound of Music. The reunion is a rare celebration of the 1965 Oscar-winning movie. They last appeared together on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2010.
The cinematic siblings will be autographing a 2012 coffee table hardcover about their lives, The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook by Fred Bronson. A certain amout will be sold and signed on Saturday, April 21st from 10a-12:30p. Each collectible includes a special certificate of authenticity from Global Authentic.
These are definitely a few of my favorite things…
Ventura County’s premier independent literary store in Camarillo is carrying both copies in the Forgotten Hollywood - Book Series. Mrs. Figs’ Book Worm is stocking their shelves with Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History & Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History and they have additionally set up an autograph party in May.
