Dan Harary reads and signs his new memoir:
“Dan Harary is the Leonard Zelig of Hollywood, the Forrest Gump of show business. Wherever there is a celebrity, he’ll invariably be close by. Whether this is due to his persistent stalking or simple coincidence is a legitimate question. What’s undeniable is Dan’s colorful ability to spin a great story. His book is a treasure trove of golden star anecdotes from 50 years of his truly unique life.”
Ray Richmond, Longtime Hollywood Journalist and Author, “Betty White: 100 Remarkable Moments in an Extraordinary Life”
Starting in 1972 when he became, at the age of 15, the Stage Manager and Lighting Director at the Sunshine Inn rock concert hall in Asbury Park, New Jersey (the venue where Bruce Springsteen began his career,) Dan Harary has met, worked with and/or interacted with many dozens of the most famous movie, TV, pop and rock music stars in the world. Besides knowing Springsteen in the early 70’s before Bruce was famous, Dan also attended Boston University in the late 70’s along with Howard Stern, and befriended Jerry Seinfeld in 1981, becoming Jerry’s “very first fan.” As an Entertainment Industry Publicist for over 40 years, Dan has met everyone from Tom Hanks to Meryl Streep, Michael Jackson to Sting, Kirk Douglas to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steven Spielberg to Jerry Springer, Roger Daltrey to Ann-Margret, Jack Black to Sid Caesar, and Richie Havens to Gene Simmons. Dan’s countless “close encounters of the celebrity kind” are sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and quite often cringe-inducing. But no matter what, Dan’s novel adventures, both along the East Coast and in Hollywood, are all either intriguing, entertaining or just plain strange!
Dan Harary will be at SideShow Books, discussing and signing his latest book, copies of which will be available for purchase! Space is limited so please RSVP at Sideshowbooksinfo@gmail.com
The Woolrich Factor continues!
SideShow Cinema returns!
Weekly Wednesday Night Screenings featuring films based on the work of suspense writer Cornell Woolrich (1903-1968) paired with a related second feature (see below for schedule)
Perhaps the best known film adaptation of Cornell Woolrich’s work is Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic REAR WINDOW, but dozens of films have been created from the hundreds of fictions which emanated from his fevered imagination — written under his own name as well as pseudonyms, William Irish and George Hopley. Indeed, Woolrich remains among the most fertile sources of cinematic suspense both throughout the Golden Age of Hollywood and across the international realms of film making — as the following three months of programming bears witness.
Movies begin at 8:30!
