Michael Lindsay-Hogg: Coming of Age in Hollywood, New York, and Points Beyond

Monday, December 19, 2011

Acclaimed director Michael Lindsay-Hogg talks about his boyhood and coming-of-age in the worlds of theater, film, and television, growing up the son of glamorous Warner’s movie star Geraldine Fitzgerald, and his distant father was an English baronet from a family whose money came from the China trade. His memoir Luck and Circumstance: A Coming of Age in Hollywood, New York, and Points Beyond tells of his struggle to make sense of his life, questions of missed chances, and the rumor—never proved or disproved—that his real father is Orson Welles.

Only 4:55 minutes long in the online stream. Where's the rest? Why are so many of your archives missing substantial parts of the segments? A great disappointment. I wanted to hear the whole interview.

Leonard...I missed the beginning of your interview with M.L-H and never heard who his mother was...usually you mention who your speaking with and what's going on...I had to get on line to see who his mother was.

Don't buy it. All kinds of genetic tracking is going on these days and he can't verify that Orson Welles is his father? Couldn't samples be taken from Orson Welles' daughters or other progeny?...

Please ask, wouldn't he like to do a DNA test to determine his actual birth father?
