    CHMTC Mini-Episode 3

    As promised this is  brief episode about some of the sources I used to put the last 2 CHMTC episodes together. Also included in these notes are some of the links I mention via which you can access the sources metioned about these great stars.
    I have also found a great new podcast which can be accessed via Itunes and other avenues. You might want to give that a listen while you are waiting for the next CHMTC episode, which will be on the late, great and recently deceased Tab Hunter, who represented the next generation of Hollywood beefcake.

Great new find

I recently stumbled across this podcast, I love all time Hollywood. I am currently listening to the Hattie McDaniel episode. I'm enjoying it but I do have one criticism. Every so often in the background I can hear a noise that sounds like a chirp. But almost sounds like a smoke alarm that needs it's batteries changed.

Incredibly researched and presented podcast for fans of old Hollywood!

This is the best podcast ever. Thanks so much for your hard work making this hilarious and informative podcast about the quirky personalities behind our favorite films. You put the humanity back in these actors. Please make more!
