Interview With Me About Groucho For “Closer Weekly” Magazine (7/14/23)

A young woman with the unlikely (but legitimate) name of Amanda Champagne-Meadows attended my TCM Festival event and recently interviewed me about Groucho for CLOSER WEEKLY, a British pop-culture magazine similar to PEOPLE, but aimed at older readers with an emphasis on legendary stars of the past.

As is often the case, the interview lasted over an hour, from which these scant paragraphs were gleaned. I had nothing to do with what did or didn’t make it into the piece. But – they spelled my name right, didn’t misquote me, and mentioned my book, so no complaints.

She wants to do a follow-up piece about the movie when things are moving in a more forwardly direction.
