A true leg­end of Hollywood Re “James Ba­con, 1914-2010, Hollywood colum­nist,” Obituary, Sept. 19

Los Angeles Times - - Opinion -

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.
