A Bit Of Lupe Velez Promotion From TCM…

Read Here

NOTE: Ordering the book directly from the publisher will ensure that you get it as soon as it’s released. If you order the book from Amazon, there’ll be a delay because the publisher has to ship the books to Amazon’s fulfillment centre and THEN they ship their pre orders from there.

So, if you want the book as soon as it’s released, without delays, order directly from McFarland.

“The Cop and the Anthem” by O. Henry…and featuring Marilyn Monroe

The 1952 film, O. Henry’s Full House featured five short stories, all penned by O. Henry. “The Cop and the Anthem” starred Charles Laughton as a kindly hobo trying his best to get arrested and tossed into a warm jail cell. Incarceration is more pleasant than a harsh New York winter on a park bench. As with most O. Henry tales, there’s a twist to this one too…Marilyn Monroe is featured (about the ten minute mark), albeit for a minute and a half. Watch below.
