BONUS: Marion Davies 101 with Lara Gabrielle
We couldn’t let the month of January pass without bringing on friend of Ticklish Biz, author Lara Gabrielle, to discuss her new biography on silent film actress Marion Davies. Lara, Samantha and Kristen talked about Davies’ last legacy, the films you should see, and whether Marion is an LGBTQ icon.
