After losing her 4-year-old granddaughter, Maggie Grant, to acute myeloid leukemia, Lori Luckhard wanted to do something. One of the ideas that she came up with was having a banner placed at the Cullman County Courthouse where the names of children who have battled cancer or are battling cancer can be written. Another idea Lori taking orders for gold ribbons, an effort started by Lana Turner & #FightlikeLanaGrace. When it comes to support, the City of Cullman, Cullman County, area businesses, families, & individuals have done a great job getting behind these efforts. On today's show, Lori is joining me to share about these efforts. I hope that you will listen in and are encouraged and inspired where you are to take action when it comes to childhood cancer.

Thanks to the Shelby County Reporter, I found out about, now, 20-year-old Lana Turner and her battle with AML leukemia. A student at Troy University, Lana was diagnosed with cancer just 13 days before her 19th birthday and was treated at Children's of Alabama. Now in remission, Lana is on a mission to give back. On today's show, I have Lana and her mom, Danielle, to share about this journey for their family, which includes her brother, Dillon, and sister, Lindsey. As we prepare to “Go Gold” for childhood cancer in September, I hope you'll listen in as Lana shares about the #FightLikeLanaGrace effort! Listen & share.

Details, credits, errata: Our guest this week is the delightful Lyz Lenz, returning to watch another awkwardly erotic 1950’s Biblical epic with us. It’s a goofy one. Our film is The Prodigal, a notorious turkey that lost the studio a ton of money despite having the beautiful Lana Turner as a fertility priestess. It is, as you might imagine, “based on” the parable from the Gospels in only the loosest possible sense of that phrase. Please buy Lyz’s books! They’re good.Our image is a gorgeous Wally Wood illustration from his lengthy parody of this film, “The Prodigious,” from MAD Magazine #26, published 1955, with text by Harvey Kurtzman. There aren’t any print reproductions of the issue but DC Comics put out a big Complete MAD on CD that has nice hi-res images of the early issues of the magazine. I’ve taken the liberty of reproducing it large enough here that the text can be read if you’d care to click on the image. It’s pretty funnyOur theme song is Louis Armstrong and His Hot 5’s Muskrat Ramble, made freely available by the Boston Public Library and audio engineering shop George Blood, LP through the Internet Archive. The Prodigal is copyright 1955 MGM. Brief audio excerpts are used herein for purposes of review. All other material is copyright 2021 Sam Thielman and Alissa Wilkinson.This is a free episode! We’d love it if you subscribed!

She would be arrested six times in one day for indecency. She would be immortalized in the final scene of The Right Stuff, cartoons, popular culture, and live on as the iconic symbol of the Chicago World’s Fair of 1933. She would pave the way for every sex symbol to follow from Marilyn Monroe to Lady Gaga. She would die penniless and in debt. In the end, Sammy Davis Jr. would write her a $10,000 check when she had nothing left. Her name was Sally Rand. Until now, there has not been a biography of Sally Rand. Today's guest, William Hazelgrove, has set out to follow her life in his new book "Sally Rand: American Sex Symbol."You can draw a line from her to Lana Turner, Marilyn Monroe, Raquel Welch, Ann Margret, Madonna, and Lady Gaga. She broke the mold in 1933, by proclaiming the female body as something beautiful and taking it out of the strip club with her ethereal fan dance. She was a poor girl from the Ozarks who ran away with a carnival, then joined the circus, and finally made it to Hollywood where Cecil B Demille set her on the road to fame with silent movies. When the talkies came her career collapsed, and she ended up in Chicago, broke, sleeping in alleys. Two ostrich feathers in a second-hand store rescued her from obscurity.Overall, Sally Rand is a testament to endless resourcefulness, tenacity, and never giving up.

Eileen was born in Brooklyn, NY to Irish immigrants and She showed early promise as a classical soprano and a scholar. At age 12, Eileen won a 21-and-under New York City-wide singing competition. She had a full academic scholarship to Brooklyn's Saint Saviour High School. Eileen received a full scholarship to Manhattanville College from which she graduated. While at Manhattanville, she also pursued vocal music studies at Juilliard. Following graduation, Eileen joined the New York Central Railroad as a VIP Passenger Representative for its fabled 20th Century Limited and Empire State lines facilitating the long-distance travel needs of Statesmen, Captains of Industry and Hollywood, at a time when contracts stipulated no travel by air. Her assignments included managing and accompanying the travel of such personalities as Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Truman, Judy Garland, Lana Turner, Vivien Leigh, Spencer Tracy, Kirk Douglas, and Clark Gable, among other legends. It was on one such trip that she met J. Joseph Curran, the future Canisius College basketball head coach of NCAA fame. They married in 1951, had four children, and made greater Amherst, NY their home until 1974. Eileen continued to sing, most notably in Buffalo's Schola Cantorum. When all four children were school age, she became a music teacher, first at Nottingham Academy of the Sacred Heart, then in the Williamsville, NY Public Schools. After relocating with her family to Wellesley, MA, Eileen served as a beloved member of the Weston Public Schools elementary education faculty.  In retirement, dividing time between Watch Hill and Palm Beach, she became a literacy volunteer and a public advocate for shoreline protection and dune restoration in a number of organizations. Eileen is survived by her four children and three grandchildren. Thank you for taking a moment today to remember and celebrate Eileen's life. That's it for today, we'll be back next time with more!

Actor/writer Peter Fox has written a companion piece to Eve Ensler's much-loved "Vagina Monologues." His is called the "Testicle Monologues: If These Balls Could Talk" and has been recorded with professional actors and is being live-streamed at Santa Barbara's Center Stage Theater as a fund-raising event. Much like Ensler's feminine tour de force, Peter's play is a set of loosely woven, hilarious, touching and poignant reflections on man's distinctive pair of characteristics. We talk about Fox's pandemic-induced creativity, the role of the arts in culture, the tremendous hardship, and also opportunity, faced by arts organizations - as imperiled as they are, the human hunger for the nourishment of the creative arts has reached a fever pitch. We talk about how this pent-up enthusiasm, following a fallow period for artists, could lead to a cultural flourishing not seen since the Roaring '20s. Fox grew up in the Chicago area as second of eight children, and was introduced to show business at an early age, doing modeling for department stores as well as television commercials. He went to Harvard University on a scholarship, where he participating in the famous Hasty Pudding shows. Despite his fancy degree he did not have a post-college plan, drifting into acting through bartending, where he was discovered through a very Lana Turner-at-Schwab's Deli-esque moment. He first came to acting fame through a lead role as Otter on the "Delta House" television show, then made the move into writing with a script for the show "Simon & Simon" and has written for stage and screen, including "Acts of God," which played for months in Los Angeles and was picked up by script publisher Samuel French, one of Peter's most glorious moments. Peter grew up in a cultural milieu that included his high school "frenemy" Bill Murray, as well as John Hughes, Charlton Heston, Gilda Radner and Ann Margret. In fact, a couple years ago he attended a fundraiser at Fordham University with John Prine playing, then hopped in a limo to go to Bill Murray's Christmas party further up the Hudson River. We had a surprise visitor show up during our call, who challenged the veracity of many of Peter's family stories. We did not talk about the Inuit diet, anarchist hero Nestor Mahkno or the Mississippi flyways. Further links: www.centerstagetheater.org. The show will be up til January 31 and all proceeds go to the Center Stage Theater. Candid Camera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mGlQeSbou0

Today’s episode is with Harlem socialite and style icon, Lana Turner. Born at the Women’s Hospital on West and 110th st. and still residing in the neighborhood 70 years later, Ms.Turner is quintessential Harlem, a landmark unto herself. A mathematician of dressing, Ms. Turner does not just put clothes on, but uses her body as a medium in which she expresses her appreciation and preservation of life, style, and beauty, or as she likes to refer to it: “Painting the body canvas.” A doyenne of mid-20th century fashion, and muse of New York Times Street style photographer Bill Cunningham, Lana Turner and I were introduced almost a decade ago at the historic Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem when I was looking for a few hats for a fashion story while in grad school. Upon meeting and chatting with her, I realized quite quickly that it was SHE who needed to be photographed, in her wardrobe, and in her hats… of which there are upwards of, wait for it… 500. Actually I believe the exact number is 638. Here are some highlights: On New York’s own black migration: "The reason for the Harlem Renaissance, or for it to have that label, was a few things. This was part of the great migration, so once we have gotten the black community moving out of San Juan Hill and moving here. When other people are enticed to come North as part of that wave, Harlem is the place their pouring into -And this is how it happens, setting the stage for that, for people who are leaving cotton fields and coming to work in the industry also brings a tide of musicians, and writers, for the first time in our history."(22:53)  On the birth of the Harlem Renaissance: "But here we are with joy, with love, with humor, and, yes, sadness, you know sometimes blues, but it's all in that music and I cannot help but relate to. Harlem was one of those bright lights at a time of the Harlem Renaissance and I dare say a bit before that." (8:30)  On Marcus Garvey’s downfall: "Marcus Garvey’s fall, however, was the fact that he only kept his counsel to himself, and when he thought about things that’s the way they should be. Now, you know, when it worked, it worked but when it didn’t it really crashed. And you know Marcus Garvey was not someone who readily took advice from people that he probably employed to give him advice, he lived by his own sensibility." (46:02)  On advice to her twenty-year-old self: "I would say do not wait for someone to give you an invitation to get dressed and go out and have yourself a ball. I say because you have meditated, because you can stand tall, because you can take the high road, you have no problems pulling together the most fanciful outfit, making a reservation at the most amazing restaurant, for 1, making your life singular so that when you are endowed with someone who is either your soulmate or your love it adds to the cake, it should never be the cake. You are the cake!"(50:01) Thank you for tuning in!
