EP. 79 — Laraine Newman: The Close Up Hollywood Podcast

Welcome back to The Close Up Hollywood Podcast with your host Clarissa Bartlett (Laraine Newman)! It’s the only podcast in which you get close up and personal with starts of the past and present. After reading Listener Letters, Clarissa welcomes Miss Amy Darling, one of the greatest child actresses to ever grace the screen. They discuss her extravagant career, her relationships with fellow actor Dickie Rush & director Christos Chrostas, and dealing with the addiction of needing to see the light of a cellphone screen. Later, Traci Reardon stops by to answer Twitter questions such as whether the world used to be in black and white or just the movies in another edition of “Help Me, Rhonda.”
