I will keep you updated on where I will be appearing for book signings.
I recently appeared as a guest speaker at the From Gillette To Brett III film convention at the Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, where I signed copies of my new book Sherlock Holmes & the Fabulous Faces: The Universal Pictures Repertory Company.
HERE'S A VIDEO OF MY FIRST APPEARANCE AT FROM GILLETTE TO BRETT II A FEW YEARS AGO.
This is a new interview I just did with Burt Wolder and Scott Monty on their website I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere
Here are some photographs taken at From Gillette to Brett III
This was the very attractive poster, announcing the event.
I had a most attractive assistant to help me while I was signing books. I'm sure that Rachael Doyle was the reason that I sold every book available in one hour.
I also gave an illustrated presentation based on my book, in which I talked about various actors and their personal histories.
This was taken after a screening of the film The Seven Per-Cent Solution. From l-r, noted literary editor and attorney Leslie S. Klinger; Actor and Sherlockian Curtis Armstrong; your's truly; Author and British broadcaster Tony Earnshaw; Novelist and screenwriter and author of The Seven Per-Cent Solution, Nicholas Meyer.
While I was in New York City I had an opportunity to visit The Players Club, thanks to my host Burt Wolder. Burt and his partner Scott Monty host the I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere web site and recently interviewed me. Here we are having lunch with Tony Bennett.
I also had a great lunch at the Blue Smoke restaurant with my old friend Tom Weaver. Tom recently interviewed me about my association with director Norman Taurog, and specifically a film we made with Vincent Price in 1965 for AIP called Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. The interview is in the current issue (May 2012) of the magazine Monsters From the Vault.
Here I'm standing in the Tribute Room at Elvis' old home, Graceland, in Memphis where memorabilia from all of Elvis' films was on display. I found posters for several of the six films I made with Elvis. I am standing in front of the Stay Away, Joe poster - one of the screenplays that I wrote.
