Royce Reed and Marilyn Hoggatt

Royce Reed and Marilyn Hoggatt

A couple of years ago we found clips of Royce on You Tube. We, at Mimi Berlin, posted a few and here is one more: Quando, Quando, also featuring Marilyn.

Royce Reed and Marilyn Hoggatt; “two of the most unusual ladies ever to grace downtown L.A.”

The makers of these clips are Bill Geerhart and Andrew D’Ambrosio. They filmed the ladies from the 1990s until 2010 at the Hotel Stillwell in downtown Los Angeles and later residences. They planned to make a documentary from this material. Bill Geerhart and Andrew D’Ambrosio’s campagin on indiegogo is closed. But the full-lnght documentary is nowhere to be found…. Maybe you know if they ever finished it or otherwise where to find it? If you do know more please let us know!
Thanks! xoxo Mimi

Caroll Channing

Carol Channing

has such many very remarkable features, we just can’t stop looking at her…..

Why posting images of Ms Channing (born in 1921) today, you ask of us. Well, yours truly binged Ru-Paul’s Drag Race Season 8  last weekend. Bob The Drag Queen is the winner. In the snatch game he impersonated the remarkable Carol Channing, that’s why.
