Bob Bekian is a Producer and Media Entrepreneur who founded several studios as well as dedicating himself to preserving the history of Hollywood. “Bob Bekian has one of the most important original film poster and still collections in the world, many of which are one-of a kind,” adds Clarissa Barth, President of the Hollywood Historical Society.  One of the many ways Bekian displays these treasure troves of the silver screen is inside his studios (www.loyalstudios.tv)., where people come from all over the world to shoot projects ranging from features to music videos. “The collection is really amazing, with the Santa Monica studio featuring artwork form the greatest Horror and Sci-Fi films, while the Burbank Studio is filled with Glamour and original celebrity signed props.”

Bekian also has 75 HD cameras to capture the discussions with important contributors to the Film Industry. The familiar traditional ‘talk show’ setting and A-list amenities makes it possible for these individuals to comfortably recount their experiences in Hollywood life.  What makes this show unique is the collection of carefully researched questions the stars are asked.  Bekian steers away from the usual publicized Q&A, thus giving the viewer a rare insight into the inner circle of Cinema Elites that continues to capture the fascination of the world.

include James Stewart, Rock Hudson, Elvis, Van Heflin, Robert Taylor, and John Wayne.” Her stories about these and other co-stars are fascinating to hear first-hand.

Julie Adams was born Betty May Adams in Waterloo, Iowa, in 1926.  She grew up in Arkansas, where she discovered her love of acting in a 3rd grade production of “Hansel and Gretel.”  Her passion to act took her to California and was discovered in a swimwear store , soon acting in up to one Western in Hollywood per week.  One of the most interesting points made about her life in the interview is that she has been consistently working in Hollywood since 1949.   Her works range between those westerns in the 40′s to ABC’s “Lost”, which ended in 2010.
