  1. Laura A. says:

    I would want to meet Judy Garland because she was my first movie star idol and I would want to try to make her happy.

  2. Joan O'Malley says:

    Barbara Stanwyck. I’m always impressed by people who over come obstacles growing up and are able to achieve their goals and dreams. She would be fascinating to talk to and learn from.

  3. Shelia says:

    I would have to say Lauren Bacall. For one, she’s smart. Two, I believe she tells it like it is and is savvy. Three, she’s attractive in features and in character, no scandals here. Four, I would like to hear her stories, not only hers but other industry happenings that were maybe not well known. Also, I think she is just a fun, versatile, evolving person who is down to earth who connects with anyone no matter their status.

  4. Dawid says:

    So may to choose from!

    But I would get a bit tactical… I would choose Humphrey Bogart, not only because he is one of my all-time favourites but the time of the meet would be one of the Academy Awards night so that I could meet the whole Rat Pack, mostly Nat King Cole, Sinatra… and of course Lauren Bacall – and many more (wouldn’t mind meeting Clark Cable while I’m there, Fred Astaire ,Mary Astor… oh I could go on like that all day!)

  5. steve carmody says:

    I would love to talk to Warren William, a great star of the pre-code era (Employee’s Entrance, Three on a Match & Skyscraper Souls). I would love to learn about what it was like to be in one of the great musicals (Golddiggers of 1933), one of the great horror films (the Wolfman), great epics (Cleopatra) and two of the great detective series (Perry Mason & the Lone Wolf)

  6. Carl says:

    I think I’d most like to sit down and talk with Marilyn Monroe. I’d really love to know what she thought about her life in Hollywood and what she wanted to accomplish in the future. She was so famous and yet it seems so sad that we still don’t know all that much about her personally. Thanks for the chance to win this excellent book.

  7. Laura says:

    I’d want to meet Judy Garland because I’d like to let her know how much she has inspired and influenced me and I’d love to experience being in the presence of someone with so much charisma, talent and warmth.

  8. I’m going to have to go with Franklin Pangborn, one of the most reliable comic character actors in Hollywood history. He’s also the link between my two cinematic heroes, W.C. Fields and Preston Sturges. Pangborn worked with many of the “greats” and would surely have many interesting stories. I also think he’d be tickled to hear that his work is remembered and that gay actors in the 21st Century can be open and even marry those they love.
