Charlie Grinker Presents: Love Makes The World Go ‘Round

Charlie Grinker Presents:  Love Makes The World Go ‘Round

Smiles, tears, and high drama from the lives of Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, Eva Peron, Grace Kelly, Hollywood actress Nancy Davis who became First Lady Nancy Reagan, and Jacqueline Kennedy – at home in the White House with JFK , Caroline and Jon Jon – then as the President’s widow shocking the world with her marriage to billionaire Aristotle Onassis. We’ll watch the delightful first appearance on television of a young and beautiful Marilyn Monroe who plays a hilarious love scene with comedian Jack Benny. How difficult was Marilyn to work with? Multiple Oscar winning director Billy Wilder, Charlie’s special guest, knows the answer. He directed Marilyn in The Seven-Year Itch and Some Like It Hot which a 2017 poll of movie critics called the funniest movie ever made. Billy recalls the difficult time he had directing Marilyn in Some Like It Hot. He says he knew that if he wanted magic he had to put up with her neuroses. He adds, “Whatever she threw away, we printed it, and it was very good. It was very, very good. She had a kind of elegant vulgarity about her. Whatever she did, wherever she stood, there was always that thing that comes through. She was not even aware of it.”

Love Makes the World Go ‘Round – a perfect Valentine evening to enjoy with your loved one!
