Ann Dvorak Author Event at the Whittier Public Library


On March 6th, I’ll be at the Whittier Public Library’s Whittwood Branch to sign copies of Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel and give a lecture all about my extended quest to document Ann’s story.

The lecture is free, though reservations are required. Full details can be found on the library’s website along with my own event page.

Hope to see some of you there!

    A little off-topic, but seeing as how tonight is ‘Oscar’ night in Hollywood, I’ll close my eyes and imagine —

    host Ellen DeGeneres saying to the assembled throng and the world television audience ‘Ladies and gentlemen, we have, at this time, a special announcement from the President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Cheryl Boone Isaacs’.

    Who then says ‘Ladies and gentlemen, it was 80 years ago that the Academy Awards for 1932-33 were presented at the old Ambassador Hotel. The nominees for Best Actress on that evening were Katharine Hepburn in “Morning Glory”, May Robson in “Lady For A Day”, and Diana Wynyard in “Cavalcade”. All of whom were wholeheartedly worthy of that recognition. However, it is the unanimous feeling of Board of Governors for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that, in the interest of fairness, we wish to atone for an egregious omission. And that is, that from today, for future reference, we will add to those previously cited, that of another performance that was equally worthy of recognition for the period covered in this category — Ann Dvorak in “Three On A Match”. ‘

    Which is then met with a round of thunderous applause.

    Would be nice, wouldn’t it?

    Yes, this would be nice. Maybe one day she’ll get mentioned!
