This is an
interview with Harold Lloyd, the great silent comedian, that was aired on television with Harry Reasoner (April 16, 1962).
It takes a bit to get to the actual interview (with a commercial with Jackie Cooper) but, unfortunately, too many people
in 1962 had to have who he was to them. The actual segment starts at six minutes.
MAGIC IN MOVIES . . .
There has been magic in the movies since
George Melies made his seminal
A Trip to the Moon (1902)
. . . But what of . . . magic . . .
the illusions of Magicians . . . as they have practiced it over the millenium?!
Maven has been very lucky to get an
interview with a couple who know . . . and inspired this page in Maven's website.
Rich and Karen Rogers have not only
practiced that fine art but strive to spread the tradition of Houdini and Harry Blackstone in their website at www.moviesandmagic.com.
Please enjoy their interview!
Rick and Karen Rogers

Magazine # 5
Maven has come across a series
of clips that not only has Louise Brooks from the 20s movie scene but an interview with Brooks:
A must see for any serious student of
Hollywood in the 1920s on the graduate level.
A name representing a man and a career
larger than life . . . anyway you define him OR it!! And at 6'6" and 86 years of age and still going . . .
what else would you expect?!
James Arness does very few interviews,
unfortuantely for Maven but she has come across a few sites for those of us who remember his work dating either to Gunsmoke
(1955 - 1975) or Them! (1954). Arness is certainly remembered as one of the few actors who could face John
Wayne on the movie screen and see eye to eye with "Duke" Wayne!
