Margaret Talbot - The Entertainer

Saturday, November 10, 2012 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Talbot’s biography of her father Lyle is also the history of the 20th-century entertainment business—and proof that life can sometimes imitate myth. Born in 1902, Lyle ran away and joined a carnival. Then he took up with a magician and went on the stage. Next came movies, and he co-starred in talkies with Carole Lombard. When television arrived, he was right there on Leave It to Beaver.
