Manny P. here…

   Labor Day Weekend ’13 has been memorable in the Forgotten Hollywood journey for a number of reasons. In addition to having another stint at CINECON, in which I sold scores of paperbacks from my book series, I set up a Holiday booksigning on December 7th at the Hollywood Heritage Museum.

Knowlden had a ten-year movie career in which she played the cinematic daughter of iconic stars such as Claudette Colbert, Katharine Hepburn, and Norma Shearer. Marilyn captured roles in The Cisco Kid, David Copperfield, Anthony Adverse, Marie Antoinette, Little Women, Les Miserables, and Angels with Dirty Faces. MARILYN KNOWLDEN ——>
