#146: Joel McCrea Birthday Tribute (with Wyatt McCrea)

The Ticklish team says “Happy birthday, Joel McCrea” by devoting an entire episode to the blonde haired actor who did practically every genre of film. McCrea’s grandson, Wyatt, joins us to talk about why McCrea feels so unique in the Old Hollywood world, Joel’s long-term marriage to actress Frances Dee, and what Wyatt knows about those Veronica Lake rumors.
Kristen’s written a new book for TCM and Running Press called But Have You Read the Book? all about film adaptations! You can pre-order it now before its March 7th release date.
