Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , , ,




When a young Tony Maretta left Meadville, Pennsylvania and turned up in Los Angeles in the early 1990’s he was looking for the golden age of Hollywood which had long passed. So rather than just focus on acting he managed to pursue his dream and became a film historian, writer, and presenter. He not only found his passion but he also soon found success. With a packed resume that included hosting CBS Home Video’s award-winning presentations of Lucille Ball’s renowned television series, The Lucy Show: he has done several commentaries for Warner Home Video, and has been an advisor for Turner Classic Movies. One of his latest projects has been co-authoring The Marble Faun of Grey Gardens about the infamous “Marble Faun” from the celebrated 1975 documentary, Grey Gardens. Queerguru caught up with him to indulge our curiosity about his take on all the acting greats he has crossed paths with.
