A true legend of Hollywood Re “James Bacon, 1914-2010, Hollywood columnist,” Obituary, Sept. 19
Iwas saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Bacon.
In 1988, he was doing some work at Rogers & Cowan, where I was an intern. One day he happened to be in the office. He struck up a conversation with me while I was filing papers. For about 10 minutes, he recounted some great Hollywood stories about people like Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Gleason. He even shared a scandalous story about a certain Hollywood producer.
Bacon, a true Hollywood legend who rubbed elbows with major stars, took time to reminisce with an intern — who never forgot his stories or his kindness.
