Company News
This month, Linda attended a two day Television Content Show Conference, where she met a number of interesting television and media directors and producers. The speakers included Wendy Williams.
And what a fabulous night it was at the Trumbo LA movie premiere!
Held at the glamorous Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday, October 27th, Linda joined her friend and client, Judith Aller and family, at the opening night of Trumbo. And what an opening night it was! Attended by the cast, family and friends, it was a pleasure to meet Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, Jay Roach, Michael Stuhlbarg, Kevin Brown, et al.
Trumbo, based on the book by Bruce Cook, was absolutely marvelous, tightly produced, fast paced and brilliantly acted. Oscar worthy on many levels!
This is a very important true story about Dalton Trumbo, who was a member of the communist party during the McCarthy Era, and who later became one of the highest paid writers in Hollywood. He was blacklisted and sent to prison for contempt of Congress. After being released, this charismatic writer, and the rest of Hollywood Ten, continued to write and release scripts under fake names, one of which, The Roman Holiday, won Trumbo an Oscar.
Trumbo opens in theaters nationwide on November 6th.
