I knew the film reference books of James Robert Parish long before I accidentally met him in NYC in the fall of 1976.
Jim is generous to his friends. he sends me packets of clippings from time to time. the one that arrivd last week includ'd a chapter of the fascinating new bio of gay agent Henry Willson.
he also e's me online articles every morning. & 2 of today's center on Marilyn Monroe. one was the obit of her first husband James Dougherty. the other was abt the current exhibition of Marilyn-inspird photographs of Mary Ann Lynch.
like her '50s male counterpart James Dean   Marilyn seems to be ubiquitous. hardly a week goes by without their images appearing or their names being utterd.
