    Sterling Hayden The Hollywood Sailor

    Sterling Hayden The Hollywood Sailor

    Many film stars tell us that they are just ordinary people, who don't care about money, fame or possessions, but yet they go on living in their many luxury homes, riding in their fancy cars and accumulating tonnes of money, in their search for more and more acclaim and the rewards that go with it. 
    Sterling Hayden, was a Hollywood movie star, who spoke his mind. He  really liked being ordinary and really disliked being a Hollywood movie star. At first, troubled by his Hollywood fame, it eventually became a means to an end, the end being to service his real loves, sailing ships, his family and belatedly writing about real-life. 
    Listen and enjoy the latest CHMTC episode about a talented,unconventional and very complicated movie star, who often confounded his studio bosses, his family and himself, in his ever constant search for an uninterrupted life at sea

    John Waynes Passion The Alamo 08082018

    John Waynes Passion The Alamo 08082018

    This is the first of a two part CHMTC episode, on the lives and careers of two of the most successful beefcake actors ever produced by Hollywood. The western icon, John Wayne and the blonde seafaring  giant, Sterling Hayden.
     
    John Wayne was a promising college student, who through the fates became one of the most successful movie stars that ever graced a Hollywood movie. Tall, handsome and virile, Wayne's love for his country influenced his films, his career and his love-life. Most of all it led to a search for redemption, to make up for his failure to serve in World War II. Along the way he  became a staunch opponent of anything he considered to be Un-American, including it seems,  certain types of civil rights, which in his view did not fit with the American dream. It also led to the creation of Wayne's great passion, his epic 1960 movie the Alamo.  
     
    Listen and enjoy the telling by Mrs Classic Film Fan of the eventful life and career of the late, great and decidedly imperfect, John Wayne, together with the trials and tribulations he suffered in making his great passion The Alamo.

Mrs Classic Hollywood MTC’s delivery is so buttery, always informative, never lurid. Having just discovered this podcast , I was very pleased with her suggestions of other Hollywood podcasts to listen to. Of those four she recommends, I have been listening to all of them (mini-episode 1, September 29, 2017)

If you follow Hollywood Classic MTC, give a try to ‘Atta Boy Clarance’, The Secret Life of Hollywood’ also (Bother Adam Roche), ‘History by Hollywood’, and ‘You Must Remember This’, you will not be disappointed.
