“Judy & Liza & Robert & Freddie & Dave & Sue & Me: A Memoir” Giveaway
Starts Monday June 1 and Runs Through Saturday July 5!
I am happy to announce that Judy & Liza & Robert & Freddie & David & Sue & Me: A Memoir will be available in stores on Tuesday, June 2… The book is a tough-talking memoir by Stevie Phillips who worked with some of the biggest names in show business — among them, the legendary Judy Garland. It’s an enjoyable ‘must read’ for any classic movie fan…
But that’s not all – I am thrilled to announce that Classic Movie Hub will be giving away SEVEN copies of the book from June 1 through July 5, courtesy of St. Martin’s Press.
About the book: During the Mad Men era, Stevie Philips was a young woman muscling her way into the manscape of Manhattan’s glittering office towers. After a stint as a secretary, she began working for Freddie Fields and David Begelman at Music Corporation of America (MCA) under the glare of legendary über-agent Lew Wasserman. When MCA blew apart, Fields and Begelman created Creative Management Associates (CMA), and Stevie went along. Fields convinced Garland to come on board, and Stevie became, as she puts it, “Garland’s shadow,” putting out fires-figurative and literal-in order to get her to the next concert in the next down-and-out town. Philips paints a portrait of Garland at the bitter end and although it was at times a nightmare, Philips says, “She became my teacher,” showing her “how to” and “how not to” live. Stevie also represented Garland’s fiercely talented daughter, Liza Minnelli, as well as Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Henry Fonda, George Roy Hill, Bob Fosse, Cat Stevens, and David Bowie.
