Jimmy-Stewart

I was stunned to see a magazine called Closer that was at the checkout (therefore, they're paying big bucks to have it there, or its publisher Bauer is muscling in based on all of its other big-bucks P.O.P. pubs) bearing cover images of Jimmy Stewart, Doris Day, Clark Gable, and Vivien Leigh. Minus that cover chip of the royals, this looks like a fan mag aimed at the recently deceased.

Pretty bold move! I can't imagine it will sell. There's interest in Old Hollywood still, but not to the tune of a mass-marketed magazine at grocery check-outs. Good luck to them, though.

EXCLUSIVE: WeHo Fave Baby Jane Collectibles Closing Comments (0)

Tumblr_mkgcr2Yb8v1r84iplo1_500

Sad news: My friend Roy Windham, a longtime expert on Hollywood memorabilia and photography, will be closing his popular Baby Jane Collectibles location in the French Market at the end of January. The landlords are going to re-do the location so need him out. While he was invited to come back after the closure and renovations, the expense of moving out and back in (and the uncertainty of the actual outcome once he's vamoosed) has led him to decide to move on.

Roy's been an entertainment dealer for 35 years, and had been in that location for 22!

Hopefully, Baby Jane will land somewhere fabulous soon. Check it out if you haven't ASAP—it's a one-of-a-kind place.

27 (No Longer) Live Comments (0)

27-club

Walked past 27, a club/restaurant in Evanston, IL, that's dedicated to the members of the so-called 27 Club, rockstars who've died at age 27 (Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendryx, Amy Winehouse, etc.).

Is it just me, or is this morbid and exploitative? I wouldn't like this brand of tribute if I were in charge of any of their estates.
