Hot Off The Press
Hollywood gossip filled the air at Cafe Milano on October 2nd when a crowd
of over 200 friends and former sources gathered to help Diana McLellan celebrate
publication of her new book, "The Girls: Sappho Goes to Hollywood".
The subtitle is a reference to the Greek poetess who was notorious for keeping
a circle of young women as lovers. The former "Ear" columnist for
the Washington Star, Washington Post and Washington Times worked for five years
on her study of the interrelationships among movie goddesses Marlene Dietrich,
Greta Garbo and Tallulah Bankhead and it is highly likely her book will be optioned
for a film or television production.
