Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She was one of the working stiff actors who made American movies a sort of extended family for me. If I don't do this for her, who will?

Memory and movies collide when the narrator of Comfort and Joi, award-winning screenwriter Joseph Dougherty's imaginative blend of fiction and film fact, sets out to document the life and work of bosomy blonde bombshell Joi Lansing, a minor glamour girl who appeared in such classics as Hillbillys in a Haunted House and Queen of Outer Space.

Alone in a borrowed house on the California coast during a winter weekend, he indulges his fascination with the pin-up who rose from extra girl to work with Orson Welles, only to end her career in grade-z horror pictures.

Offbeat movie history from the fringes of Hollywood triggers haunting personal memories as he follows this beautiful beacon in a Sargasso of bad filmmaking and finds an unexpected path to his own past.

Dougherty is a humanist who argues that each of us has to look, listen, choose, and commit. His work is as encouraging as it is enlightening.

--Douglas Heil, Prime-Time Authorship
