“Forgotten Hollywood”- Let’s Look at the Tote Board (#14)…

Posted on April 11, 2013 by raideoman1 | No Comments

   In memory of my colleague Gary Lycan, our FORGOTTEN HOLLYWOOD Pilot Documentary (Development) funding campaign has now reached its 14th week on INDIEGOGO. We have approached 57% of our goal. Click on the link if you are interested in making a contribution:

~ GARY LYCAN ($200) – One of the final acts of my companion in this Forgotten Hollywood journey was to make one more contribution to our campaign. Not knowing he was taking a turn for the worse, which he kept private (since he was uniformally upbeat in public), he sent me a typical email that served to help me put my priorities in order. Gary Lycan was a consummate professional, who met his deadline for his Orange County Register radio column, even as recently as last Thursday. He confided to me that our project kept his spirits up, and I believe, helped him fight the good fight against cancer. I continue to work on Forgotten Hollywood to honor his memory. Rest in peace my friend…

   Wonderful media tributes are pouring in for Gary. Here are links from LAObserved, Orange County Breeze, LARadio.com, and the Tom Leykis website:

The Frank & Sons Collectibles Show in the City of Industry has been a place of business for almost two decades. A fine  dancer, he also sings quite well, and indulges in karaoke at Southern California locations. He recently made the valuable suggestion that I sell my series of books at Frank & Sons. My next visit is on April 20th.

   And, thank you once again to Phill Cross of Cross Web Tech and Julie Turnbaugh for their continued support by sending social media messages on Facebook to promote my Forgotten Hollywood campaign.

   During this 2013 campaign, I’m asking friends, family, and supporters to help us achieve our 120+ day (17-week) goal of $500081 contributors want to support quality family-friendly television programs, intelligently presented.

   YOU can contribute ANY AMOUNT. This step ensures Development, and we’ll be able to:

  1. Hire a research archivist to track down footage and photos; and secure licensing
  2. Hire a consultant / casting director to book actors and behind-the-scenes folks from Hollywood’s Golden Age; plus cinematic historians for original interviews
  3. Set up a production shoot to tape these candid moments

   Here’s the INDIEGOGO link for the details (and you’re chance to contribute):


   All participants will receive screen credit at the conclusion of the Documentary Pilot.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
