Watching Classic Movies Podcast--Eve Golden, Author of Jayne Mansfield: The Girl Couldn't Help It


They say never meet your heroes, but “they” never said anything about heroines. In my talk with Eve Golden, I found her to be every bit as witty, informed, and fun as I imagined her to be since I first started reading her Movieline column The Bottom Shelf in the 90s. Since then she has written two collections of film essays, and seven film and theater biographies, with an eighth on the way. We talked about her latest book Jayne Mansfield: The Girl Couldn’t Help It, her next biography, squealing, bullet bras, and all sorts of other important things.
