Book Tour:Hollywood Stories by Stephen Schochet

 

 

Genre: Film/History/Humour

 

Synopsis: At high noon on a cold November day in 1974, sixty-seven-year-old John Wayne faced off with the staff of the Harvard Lampoon on the famous campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The students had issued their challenge by calling the beloved American icon a fraud. Wayne, who had his new movie McQ to promote, responded by saying he would be happy to show his film in the pseudo-intellectual swamps of Harvard Square. After the screening, without writers, the former USC footballer delivered a classic performance. When one smart young man asked where he got his phony toupee, Wayne insisted the hair was real. It wasn’t his, but it was real. The appreciative underclassmen loved him and after the Q and A session, they all sat down to dinner. Later Wayne, who was suffering greatly from both gout and the after effects of lung cancer (sadly the Duke only had five years to live), said that day at Harvard was the best time he ever had.

I love to share all my book finds with you guys, and while I have yet to read this one, I can tell by the excerpts that it is going to be a great one!!

Here is my favorite one:

Bob Couldn’t Always Trust Bing

Bing Crosby would stick up for his friend and sometimes-rival Bob Hope, but loved playing jokes on him in private. One time during a morning round of golf, the screen partners discussed a hurtful magazine article that called the very rich Hope a cheapskate. Bing promptly went home to write an angry letter to the editor. People didn’t realize that when Bob did free benefits for the US armed forces, he also gave up tons of money he could earn in other venues. After Hope thanked him, the crooner wanted a favor. There were a group of sailors on leave in New York who could use entertaining. Bing’s schedule was full; could Bob do it? The patriotic comedian agreed and quickly left Hollywood for the East Coast. Bob was stunned when the military audience sat stone-faced, not laughing at any of his jokes. Crosby hadn’t mentioned to Hope that the servicemen were members of the Royal Dutch Navy, who didn’t speak a word of English.

Extra: Crooner Bing Crosby (1903-1977) and comedian Bob Hope (1903-2003) met while they were each performing at New York’s Capitol Theater in 1932. They became drinking buddies and planned out a routine to enhance each other’s act. Bob would come out on stage and say he had to do the show alone tonight. His partner had unfortunately locked himself in his dressing room. Bing then appeared in the wings, holding a plank of wood with an attached doorknob.

“I’ll be going solo tonight,” Crosby told the crowd. “My partner has a stomach ache.”
“But I don’t have one,” Hope protested.
“You will after I make you swallow this!”
Audiences were delighted and Hollywood studio executives took notice.

Extra: Crosby and Hope sometimes had a tense relationship and did not always appreciate being the butt of each other’s jokes. A particular sore spot for Crosby was when Hope made fun of his toupee. During a scene in Road to Singapore (1940), the two men were about to settle down and get some shuteye when the director noticed something wrong. “Bing, why don’t you take your hat off?”
“What are you talking about?” the singer replied. “This is how I sleep.”
No amount of arguing or front office pressure could change the leading man’s mind; Crosby’s head and hairpiece stayed covered throughout the shot.
Extra: Bob Hope was one of the Masters of Ceremonies when Bing Crosby won the Oscar for playing a priest in the sentimental comedy Going My Way(1944). The comedian later said that smiling as Crosby received his statue was the greatest acting job of his life.

HE’S TERRIFIED

Chance McGregor is known as one of the toughest werewolves around. As the Dominion Creek Pack Guardian it’s his job to protect the pack and its laws. Even if that requires him to find his true mate or mate with someone of the council’s choosing. With the Mating Ceremony fast approaching – and Chance a very unwilling participant – he has more on his mind than pack safety. It’s enough to make even the baddest werewolf whine like a puppy.

SHE’S IN CONTROL

Stephanie Taylor is finally making her way in the world. She’s out of a bad marriage, starting a business with her best friend in a great new town, and in control of her stable – if not sometimes boring – life. She can handle boring and she doesn’t need a man to tell her what’s best for her anymore.

WHAT’S A WOLF TO DO?

When Chance runs into Stephanie on the street, he realizes that he found his woman. The problem is she’s a human. Not a problem for him though. Now all he has to do is convince her that they are meant to be together forever; talk the ever-meddling pack council into allowing the mating; and protect his pack from a group of rogue wolves wreaking havoc across the state. With their hearts, and lives, on the line Chance and Stephanie will do the only thing they can…

Choices Book Tour: Cast Interview Guest Post

I would like to thank Liz for stopping by and interviewing the cast of Choices (The Guardian Trilogy)

Hello everyone!
I am Liz Schulte, creator of the Guardian Trilogy. Today I am asking the cast of the books a question for your enjoyment.

We will go in order starting on my right.
Question: What is your favorite scene in the books?

Olivia: Oh. I guess I am first. My favorite scene in the series is when I found out was Holden and Quintus were. I know I was angry and may have been a little harsh, but it was nice to finally not be in the dark about everything that was happening to me. It changed things for me, but also made me understand what I was up against and what I really wanted.

Quintus: My favorite moment is when Olivia came back. She looked so lovely opening her eyes in the forest, stark naked and wide eyed. She fluttered around looking at everything glowing like a firefly. It made me remember just how beautiful the Abyss actually is.

Olivia: *covers face* Oh my God. You had to bring up my being naked. Jerk.

*Quintus shrugs and flashes his deep dimples. The sound of cracking comes from across the room.*

Liz: Holden, you break it, you bought it.

Holden: Let’s just get this over with.

Liz: Femi, you’re next.

Femi: Hmmm my favorite moment is when Liv and I were in Xavier. I totally had that jinni’s bluff. *cat like grin* Not that I couldn’t have kicked his butt, but it was so much more fun to make him back down with just the threat of my awesomeness.

Baker: Well, doll, making the boss man over there admit there was a dame who had him wrapped around her little finger in up there on my list. He keeps his cards close to the chest, so it is no small victory to get a piece of what is happening underneath. Personally, I can’t wait for the third book. That kitten right there *winks at Femi* is the bee’s knees.

Femi: Call me kitten again, I dare you.

Liz: Femi, play nice. Holden, you’re the last one. What is your favorite scene?

Holden: Beating the crap out of the guardian didn’t suck. *glares at Quintus* But it wasn’t the best moment. The best moment was when I knew Liv loved me no matter what I am. I will get that back. Mark my words.

Thank you guys for playing along!
Liz

Choices (The Guardian Trilogy)
Hearts break. Loved ones are lost. Life keeps moving.

Olivia Martin’s afterlife was more dangerous and confusing than her life ever was. She thought she was ready to come back, to forget about Holden and to let go of the rage consuming her. Fulfilling her destiny as a guardian was all that mattered—the past could stay hidden in the crevices of her mind. However, when guardians are murdered and the evidence points towards jinn, she has to do something. To save anyone’s future, Olivia will have to confront the one person from her past she is terrified to see.

Holden waited for Olivia with the hope he would see her one more time. But when she didn’t return, he found salvation in darkness. The black and twisted road made it easier to forget what he lost than to live with the memory of what he had. An unexpected promotion shoves him into a world of intoxicating power and influence. Holden will have to choose between his new life and the woman he thought was gone forever.

From the ashes of Secrets, Choices are born that will change everything.
