BONUSCAST | The Jay Hopkins Interviews: Volume 4 - Steve Stoliar

Official description: "Still stuck in quarantine, we’ve dug up another vintage interview from Jay Hopkins’ archives. From 1979, Jay talks with Steve Stoliar, who worked in Groucho’s house as secretary during his final years and later wrote the essential account of this era, Raised Eyebrows. Steve details how he helped get Animal Crackers rereleased after being out of circulation for twenty years, and how this led to him meeting Groucho and being hired by the infamous Erin Fleming. Steve recounts his fascinating duties, and meeting the many characters and celebrities that were always around.  Of course, unlike our previous archive subjects, Steve is still with us…but this interview dates from much closer to his time with Groucho than even his book, so his memories are especially crystal clear."
