    Wish I could be transformed back to Hollywood 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. Those were the days! And to have an hour talking with Louella and Hedda, would be the icing on the cake. As long as I am wishing, how about taking a ride with either one and having them tell us what and where the real “Dirt” was and with whom. Ahh yes.

  2. A building that is still standing! Cheers to that!

    Louella Parsons would have been 48 in April 1930 (and she turned 49 in Aug. 1930). Did she shave 10 years off her age when the census was done?
