Today I’m taking a short break as I’m discussing publishing a novel of mine with some charming people – I’ll fill you in if the chips fall my way – actually, I’ll fill you in either way.
Over the weekend we’ll see where you might have had a swell Valentine’s dinner in Hollywood in the 1940’s – and we’ll glance at the menu at a dinner honoring Albert Einstein in Los Angeles in 1932. And, if you were stuck working on Valentine’s at MGM the food from the commissary wasn’t half bad, as you’ll see.
And, we’ll do a little Valentine homage to love that lasts (in a very tough town for romance) featuring Anne Bancroft and Mel Brooks, Paula Prentiss and Richard Benjamin, and Frances Dee and Joel McCrea.
