Blind Item #8 - Mr. X - An Old Hollywood Harvey Blind

___________ was Old Hollywood Harvey's right hand. She picked out young MGM starlets for Harvey to assault. She was also the assistant to this permanent A++ list mostly movie actress, and took advantage of her sexually when the A++ lister was under the influence of uppers and downers. The assistant also arranged for this A+ list actress/pinup to secretly have a back alley abortion after the actress/pinup became pregnant with Harvey's baby, which he didn't know about till much later. The assistant told Harvey a false story so he wouldn't fire her, that the baby's father was actually closeted heartthrob ______________, whom the actress/pinup was being linked to at the time. The assistant also played this game when the A++ lister was pregnant with _________'s baby, she told Harvey that the closeted heartthrob was again the father. When the closeted heartthrob's longtime boyfriend ___________ was relayed this info by the confused heartthrob he tried to confront Harvey and the assistant but was turned away at the studio's front gates by Harvey's instruction. The assistant  also befriended this A- list mostly movie actress when she was at the start of her relationship with this permanent A++ list singer/actor, and sure enough the A- lister was a victim of Harvey as well. The singer/actor threatened to kill Harvey after the A- lister told him, but Harvey eventually had the actor/singer fired from the studio (and for a short time had him blackballed) even though had just made two hit movies (1)___________________ and (2) ____________________.

It's Old Hollywood Mad Libs! :)

MontanaMarriott said...

Uppers and downers reminds me of Judy Garland for the Perm A+++

Tricia13 said...

Cary Grant or M.Clift for closeted Guy/Sinatra for other “father” A+lister/Ava Gardner?

MontanaMarriott said...

Cary Grant and his long time lover Randolph Scott?

Tricia13 said...

Could this be Betty Robin as the assistant?(MM)

Violet said...

Ava Gardner is the last actress, and Frank Sinatra wanted to kill the director.

Sharpie said...

Frank Sinatra as the A++ list singer/actor fired by studio (MGM)?

Carrie said...

Ava Gardner. It sounds like it could be Judy Garland, but I don't really think of her as a pinup.

Thonker said...

who is the assistant? cause she sounds like a giant POS

Teachermom said...

Virtually unknown to the public, Betty Robin was a personal assistant to Marilyn Monroe in New York and California during the last eight months of her life. In the 1980's, Robin spoke out for the first time with the sole purpose of exonerating her former employer from the stigma of suicide. Marilyn's attorney Milton "Mickey" Rudin hired Robin who used to work for David O. Selznick and his brother Myron, best known for producing one of the greatest motion pictures of all time Gone With The Wind (1939). Daily, Robin reminded Marilyn of her professional commitments. She would fix dinner.

Moose said...

Liz Taylor for the A++, with Montgomery Clift as the closeted heartthrob

MontanaMarriott said...

I forget, was Old Hollywood Harvey ever revealed? I can't recall if it was and if so who it was. I think the popular guesses were Howard Hughes and Eddie Mannix.

Teachermom said...

If it's Betty Robin, it's probably one of the Selznicks, as she worked for them...

MontanaMarriott said...

The BI is referring to two different women, the Perm A++ who was into uppers and downers and the A+list actress/pin up who had the abortion and tied to a gay heartthrob.

Jean Grey said...

Was Cher ever a pinup?? She fits the A+ list actress at the time and so does Dolly Parton and they were both very close to gay heartthrobs.. Although, I feel that word is used a little too loosely here...

bibliophile927 said...

I immediately thought of Mamacita and Joan Crawford - dunno if that fits tiime lines though

Undercover_LBD said...

I <3 Mamacita. (At least the version of her on TV.)

Poppymann said...

The pinup has to be Rita Hayworth.
She was loaned to MGM.

Gilda is a fantastic movie.

Betty Asher- HH"s Right hand
Judy Garland- Permanent A++ Movie Actress
Lana Turner - A+ Pinup/ Actress
Tyrone Power- Closeted Heartthrob
Caesar Romero-Boyfriend
Ava Gardner- A-list Actress
Frank Sinatra- Singer /Actor
Anchors Aweigh and On the Town- 2 hit movies

I believe Gene Tierney is the A++ lister who got pregnant
Howard Strickland for Hollywood Harvey

More Cowbell said...


Judy Garland is the A++ lister. From DM, see below:

"EXCLUSIVE: How Judy Garland smiled as she slit her left wrist down to her artery, set herself on fire before a concert and tried to have lesbian sex in the back of her limo with her 20-something assistant, revealed in new memoir
Stevie Phillips became Judy Garland’s ‘shadow’ and agent in 1960 and stayed with her for four years..."

+1 tall dark

AIP said...

Yeah, tall dark and handsome has it. The story has been doing the rounds for some years... including here, I’m pretty sure... just not the connection of the PA.

nonyabusiness said...

+1 tall
love old hollywood blinds

Joe said...

It's not Cher. She wasn't viewed as an actress until she was almost 40. And it's not Dolly as she is not primarily an actress. They would both be at most "singer/actress".

Monroe is the permanent A++ movie actress. I thought Garland at first too, but Monroe fits better.

LauraLeen said...

I am pretty sure that the strongest guess was Eddie Manix, who also raped Judy Garland and tried to kill Lucille Ball. Also I love the way the use "Harvey" to identify this man. This kind of people is scum!

51northhollywood said...

Being older than all of you...look up Harry Cohn. Reputed to be a vile, manipulative studio chief. He took credit for promoting Rita Hayworth.

atoukzug said...

Getting Frank Sinatra fired and blackballed?

Kind of really puts into perspective how much juice Harvey had in Hollywood.

It takes a whole lot of dirt on a whole lot of people to get that kind of power.

One can only hope that there is a file cabinet somewhere that will fall into the right hands. Enty's, maybe?

Picklet said...

Howard Hughes was reputed to have gotten Gene Tierney pregnant and Ava Gardner was reputed to have decided to not have children after Hughes gave her syphilis.

Freckles said...

Howard Hughes, Marilyn, Loretta young and ava Gardner with Sinatra showing up to be at him up

tall, dark, and handsome said...

All about Betty Asher-

@Montana Marriott

Yeah, I think the book The Sewing Circle claimed Judy's manager or assistant was in a "relationship" with her since she was a teen.

Snappy Dragon said...

@brayson87 instead of the blanks asking for a “noun or proper name” it would ask for “old Hollywood rapist” or “director/pedophile”. It’s funny but horrible at the same time...

Dusty Fairy said...

I love these old Hollywood blinds. Liz Taylor was also wrapped up with (and exposed, decades later) so many gay leading men - Clift, Dean, etc.

Unknown said...

Marilyn Monroe for the drugged up pin up/ actress, Frank Sinatra for the singer/ actor, Mia Farrow for the A- actress.

Wellywood said...

Betty Grable for the pin up

Court b said...

+1 montana

Court b said...

They are not old Hollywood, like at all.

Court b said...

Agreed

Court b said...

Yes!

Court b said...

Besides they weren't in movies til the 80's!!!?? Not old Hollywood!!!! Not even close!

MissDe said...

Definitely think Frank and Ava she had a few abortions and he was very protective over her

Irish Dre said...

Howard Hawks

gauloise said...

+1 for Betty Grable she was the no. 1 pin-up girl of all time

Itttt said...

As much as I thought this was Eddie Mannix back when the old Hollywood Harvey blinds first began (mainly based on that one BI that had further info on the old "It Happened One Night...at MGM" story about the rape of Patty Douglas), I am convinced that Old Hollywood Harvey is Howard Hughes.

Hollywood Harvey initials = H.H. = Howard Hughes initials

Sadly, there is even no shortage of disgusting, vile, subhuman PoS Hollywood moguls to choose from when it comes to BIs!!!
