Diana Levitt Markes art party & Marilyn Monroe show debuts online on her Birthday June 1

by Harrison Held

My pal, acclaimed Artist/Actress Diana Levitt Markes, recently hosted a sensational party to celebrate the exhibition of her superb art at Hollywood's famed Women's Club on La Brea. Check out her site at www.DianaLevitt.com. She's a wonderful artist and one of the nicest people I know! Diana was recently seen by the masses in the network promos for the new outrageous "Osbournes Reloaded" show and she was great!

Also in attendance at the party were several guests that appear on my popular local Hollywood Icons talk show, "The Ultimate Marilyn Trilogy". You see Diana's father, acclaimed director F. Hugh Herbert, who directed and wrote the very first film that the beloved Marilyn Monroe ever appeared in, 1948's "Scudda Hoo Scudda Hay". Her cousin is popular actress Kathleen Hughes, known as "Universal's MM" ("It Came from Outer Space", "The Glass Web") and Kathleen's husband is esteemed veteran producer Stanley Rubin, the brains behind Marilyn's classic "River of No Return" in which she sung so beautifully. These 3 wonderful people plus Marilyn's award winning hairdresser Sylvia Barnhart (who made her a blonde in the 1940's) and renowned author John Gilmore ("Inside Marilyn Monroe") appear in the trilogy.

"The Ultimate Marilyn - Volume 3" debuts globally online to celebrate MM's birthday on June 1st. You can experience it at www.HarrisonHeldStarMedia.com. Please check it out and tell your friends! Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have been watching the shows. Thanks for watching and your kind feedback.
