Cinecon 42 - Hollywood Report, Edna Purviance documentary








Cinecon 42

Our report of the September 2006 Hollywood Trip and presentation of 'The Angel from Nevada', the first showing of the Edna Purviance documentary featuring Edna's grandniece, Lita Hill.

With several EXTRA links including images from the video event.

Addition: Comment sent to us that was written by another fan who saw "Angel from Nevada" at Cinecon 2006. I'm sorry I don't know the author. (see comments for more)

"THE EDNA PURVIANCE DOCUMENTARY: This looks like a work still in progress, but remarkable interviews with Edna's great niece, herself quite the interesting lady. A nontraditional view of Edna, who did NOT pine away and die after her affair with Chaplin ended, but went out and lived a good full life and married the man of her dreams. I hope this one gets some walking money."

Just a little note: If you see our Hollywood Cinecon Report used on other websites, ednapurviance.org has not granted permission to anyone to do so. But we do appreciate your interest.

I usually don't surf the web looking for comments. I just rather keep my focus on the work at hand and doing the very best we can. But I had this one pointed out to me recently. Don't know the author, but to the author: Yes, it is a work in progress and we have more plans in the works. Would be nice to have a studio budget, but doing the best we can with the budget we do have. Glad to read you enjoyed the interview with Lita. She is remarkable lady!

Just to follow up with a thank you to all the people who have been emailing in about the article. We are glad to here you are enjoying it!

To answer the question that keeps arriving, at this time we plan to release the DVD on this video at the time of the biography on Edna. At this point will be in 2008.

The work on the first Edna book looks good for early 2007. Just working out some issues normal in producing a book.

Thanks again for writing in!
