Lordy!here is a special treat! Acclaimed author, director, and producer Sam Irvin sits down with me to talk about his book, Kay Thompson: From Funny Face to Eloise, and all about the fabulously fantastic Ms. Thompson, and her scandalously delightful pint-sized creation: Eloise.
Mr. Irvin patiently answered all my questions and graciously let me in on all sorts of things about the famous leading lady, from her wild successes, secret lovers, and world changing fashion sense to her massive unsung influence on all of Hollywood, her brilliance in almost everything she touched and her struggles with substance abuse…
Despite all of Kay’s wonderfulness, her beacon of a star has been hidden in the back closets of Hollywood dressing rooms. Long forgotten and unappreciated – but not anymore! Mr. Irvin shows us all just how much Kay did for her era and beyond without ever missing a beat. You can find your copy of Kay Thompson: From Funny Face to Eloise at a bookstore near you or by clicking here.
To find out more on Mr. Irvin, his book, Kay, and Eloise herself, scimper on over to his website, www.kaythompsonwebsite.com for all sorts of vastly important information and events…
Also, you can catch Mr. Irvin and Hilary Knight (illustrator of the Eloise books) at Author’s Night at The East Hampton Public Library in East Hampton, New York, on Saturday, August 11th 2012!
And so, without further ado, here’s the interview for lord’s sake! (he he)
