Guest suggestions

Recommended Posts

Any stars from the Golden era of Hollywood - esp Lauren Bacall or Doris Day

 

European film stars - Brigitte Bardot would be popular, Sophia Loren, Claudia Cardinale, Gina Lollobrigida, Anita Ekberg, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Franco Nero

 

a Hitchcock ladies theme -

 

Kim Novak (Vertigo has recently moved up to number one film of all time on Sight and Sounds list),

 

Eva Marie Saint (my main reason for meeting Martin Landau at Autographica 2012 was because he was in North by Northwest so it would be good to meet another star from that classic)

 

Vera Miles - I don't think we've ever had a Psycho guest at a show

 

Joan Fontaine - Rebecca is still such a great classic and of course an Oscar winner for Suspicion

 

and a return visit from Tippi Hedren, met her twice but still got lots of things I'd like to get signed

 

a David Lean theme -

Julie Christie, Peter O'Toole, Omar Sharif, Sir Tom Courtenay

 

some of the stars of the all time family classic films would be great guests. The films that always get shown at Christmas, New Year, Easter etc - Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Sound of Music, Doctor Dolittle - these films always will be popular.

 

Dick Van Dyke would be very popular as of course he's in two of those, Mary Poppins and Chitty

 

Glynis Johns and Karen Dotrice (Mary Poppins)

Sally Ann Howes, Anna Quayle, Adrian Hall, Heather Ripley (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang)

Samantha Eggar, William Dix, Geoffrey Holder (Doctor Dolittle)

and any of the surviving cast of Sound of Music

 

Space guests -

 

Gene Cernan, Alan Bean, Jim Lovell.

 

 

And if this time we could have some Russian guests again I'd like to see Alexei Leonov, Valeri Kubasov, and Valentina Tereshkova.

 

a return visit from Helen Sharman would also be good, and I'd love to see Gene Kranz do his first Autographica

 

British entertainment stars -

 

Kenn Dodd, Ronnie Corbett, Sir Bruce Forsyth, Jimmy Tarbuck, Kenny Lynch, June Whitfield, Frank Thornton, Nicholas Parsons

 

British comedy writing legends - Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, Jimmy Perry - I'm sure most people have got DVDs they'd like signed by those three

 

an Avengers theme -

Brian Clemens, Dame Diana Rigg, Honor Blackman, Linda Thorson

 

1960s theme -

art/photography - Sir Peter Blake, David Bailey

models - Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton

fashion - Mary Quant

 

James Bond -

Sir Ken Adam, Guy Hamilton, Lewis Gilbert, and return visits from John Glen and the great Clifton James.

And obviously like most collectors I'd love to see Sir Roger Moore and Sir Christopher Lee at any show

 

we never get many music guests at shows, some who may want to appear -

Noddy Holder, Mick Taylor, Glen Matlock, Tommy Steele, Marty Wilde, Joe Brown, Gerry Marsden, and a return visit from Pete Best

 

WW2 - any Battle of Britain pilots (German or British), George Johnny Johnson is always a pleasure to meet

 

sport -

Sir Roger Bannister would fit in perfectly at Autographica, a British icon and part of history

Sir Jackie Stewart

Sir Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks would be good again

Sir Tom Finney - one of the greatest icons of English football, he's never been at a signing show

Lester Piggott - great guest but he hasn't done Autographica yet

 

US comedy legends - Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Sid Caesar, Jerry Lewis

 

Luise Rainer - the first actress to win back to back Oscars in 1936 and 1937. She's 103 now but she appeared at the BFI in 2010 to mark her 100th and signed autographs. I think she lives in London.

 

and the actress who spoke the first line ever in a horror film, Carla Laemmle, who played the coach passenger in Dracula (1931).

She's also 103 years old and amazingly still appears at signing shows in the US, including some upcoming ones in 2013.

If shes well enough to travel she would be great to meet.

Danny Glover did one recently - He would be good

 

If you got Felix Baumgartner - It would be VERY busy.

Professor Brian Cox would perfetly combine the role of lecturer and signer. He has already been signed up before he will be joining Astronauts and other distinguished scientists,

An advantage for Autographica would be in his fees, particularly travel. Journey would only be from Sheffield to Birmingham.

Please try to rebook Yaphet Kotto - I looked forward to meeting him all of last year and it was a huge disappointment when he was unable to attend.

 

You've done such a great job in bringing guests to your shows from the original Alien film and there are just a few more of these guys to go, although I appreciate that the chances of getting Harry Dean Stanton are nil (despite him being in a few films recently, including Avengers) and the chances of Ian Holm are getting fewer as time rolls on.

With the Spacelab/STS-9 anniversary in November how about bringing over Ulf Merbold as a start to European guests. This is one aspect which has missed out in the past. European astronauts are attending space shows much more frequently now.

Yeah HDS is 86 now. Was suprised Ian Holm is 81! Didn't think he was that old for some reason. Both of them (and YK) would be very welcome!!
