THE GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD LIVES ON

05/04/2015   |   No Comments »

Gayle and I were the guests of Hollywood superstar agent Budd Burton Moss, and his lovely wife Carolyn, at the 100th anniversary dinner for Anthony Quinn, hosted by Katherine (Mrs. Anthony) Quinn, held at the lavish and tasteful Greenacres estate of Billionaire Ron Burkle in Beverly Hills.  The  gala was to support the Anthony Quinn Foundation, which provides scholarships for high school students wishing to pursue acting, writing, painting and other artistic careers.  Anthony Quinn was not just a great actor, but a great artist himself.  One of the special gifts given to each attendee was a coaster with an image painted by the great actor himself.

Most readers will remember Anthony Quinn for his role as Zorba in “Zorba The Greek”, the heavyweight in “Requiem for a Heavyweight”, or the emotionally troubled strong man in “La Strada”.  Anthony Quinn was a man’s man and one of the truly larger than life figures from the Golden Age of Hollywood.  In attendance were many super stars including Robert Forster (with his partner Denise) who starred with Quinn, Bo Derek the perfect “TEN” (who also starred with Quinn), Edward James Olmos, and host for the evening the impeccable Larry King.  Larry shared some wonderful stories that revealed both the humanitarian warmth and strength of Anthony Quinn.

Gayle and I were seated with Anthony’s youngest daughter Antonia Quinn.  She is just graduating from college this May and will be pursuing her own creative dreams in the world of film.  She is likely to have a wonderful career, and Budd already has a project for her that is in development for the CW channel.  The golden age of Hollywood will live on in her blood.

Budd is writing a book about and titled “Hollywood”.  He will tell stories about Rita Hayworth, Jack Valenti, President and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America, and former aide to President Lyndon B. Johnson, Sidney Poitier among many other actors, including Budd’s client Tom Bosley (Happy Days Star from the Golden Age of Hollywood).  Through his book, his stories of the Golden Age of Hollywood will survive for future generations to enjoy.  And lucky for us, for a night Gayle and I were part of that Golden Age.

So pleased about this Rave Review of “Dr. and Master Sha: Miracle Soul Healer.” This is what makes writing worth it:

“Hi Bill,

I cracked open your excellent book and was absolutely enthralled with what I read…I love the intimacy you achieve in your storytelling…very authentic and believable. Your ideas are cogent and well-organized…really wonderful writing.

Though I’m a short way into your story, even within the first few pages I began to feel an overwhelming urge thank you.”
