Mary Beth, you have such a wonderful history of great movies. I watch them whenever they come on. You are greatly missed

Jack LivingstonApr 13, 2010

I met Ms Hughes in Reno in the mid 60`s. She was singing in the main floor bar at either Harrah`s or Harold`s club. I`d like to hear from anyone who knew her at that time. Jack.
