A recent discovery for me is an excellent blog http://home2hollywood.wordpress.com run by Annette Bochenek.

One aspect of Annette ‘s writing covers fascinating posts about the hometowns of famous stars. Annette visits the towns and cities and does wonderful research, with excellent and rare  photos, And lots of archival material. She has  also met relatives who have shared photos and mementoes with her.

Most recently Annette has written about AUDREY TOTTER who was born in  Joliet,Illinois. Amazingly, Annette was in touch with Audrey’s  granddaughter,Eden who provided a wonderful story about LADY IN THE LAKE.

In the film, Audrey wears a brooch with her character’s initials, A.F ( for Adrienne Fromsett). In real life, Audrey’s married name was Audrey  Fred, and so Audrey kept that brooch and her granddaughter now has it.

What a keepsake!

Annette has featured so many stars – including Fredric March, Irene Dunne, Myrna Loy,James Stewart, Tyrone Power ( Annette met Tyrone’s daughter,Taryn), Carole Lombard. All with rare photos.

I’m so glad I have found this blog and recommend it very much.
