Via Arroyo Chamisa: The complete A Pictorial History of the Silent Screen by Daniel Blum is available to peruse online. The book is long out of print and won't ever be printed again, so here's your chance to wallow in nostalgia for a time you probably don't remember in the first place.
Via Globe (March 25, 2013): Sandra Harmon, 74, was one of the most successful writers in sitcom history, manufacturing the "ha!" for everything from The Bill Cosby Show (not the one you're thinking of!) to The Dick Cavett Show. Now, she's written a French-kiss-and-tell bio that would put a slutty Maury teenager to shame with its don't-hate-the-playa details.
A partial list of her conquests includes Donald Sutherland, Jimi Hendrix, Burt Reynolds, Norman Mailer (I believe he once wrote that if you fucked a woman in the ass, she would be a whore forever), Maximilian Schell, Michael Crichton and Eddie Albert, the latter of whom sexually assaulted her. Sounds like he was beggin' for a pitchfork in the rear.
I don't see any info on when the book is publishing, so maybe it's just in proposal form now, but this bitch wrote Elvis & Me with Priscilla Presley, so she knows how to do it.

HAPPILY NEVER AFTER: Best Disney parody of all time.
I neglected to make note of the passing of Micky D. Moore the other day when my friend Chexy forwarded his obituary, but better "late" than never.
As many of you know from my posts in recent years, I have a special fascination for the scant few human beings known to have appeared in a silent film who are still living. I have managed to gather autographs (or even meet) several of them, including Mickey Rooney, Mary Carlisle, Baby Peggy and Moore, who until quite recently was selling signed copies of his rambling, unedited, incredibly absorbing and historically important memoir.
Moore died on March 10 of congestive heart failure after a career that began with a co-starring role alongside Mary Pickford and continued with work as an assistant or second-unit director on Elvis Presley films, the 1953 classic The War of the Worlds and the movies of Steven Spielberg. His first job was as an actor in 1919's The Unpainted Woman, his last was as second unit director of 102 Dalmatians in 2000—over 80 years.
I encourage you to check out his work if you want an expanisve look at the film industry filled with the kinds of showbiz morsels a sharply dwindling number of people are capable of telling.
