“Presenting Gilda Lily: My Years in Hollywood”
Another New Film from David Leddick
Until I saw the three films by David Leddick I always only thought of him as a writer but now I see he is so much more. In “Presenting Gilda Lily”, he gives us the story of an imaginary movie queen who lets us know about her years in Hollywood and she tells it like it was. Leddick is Gilda Lily who immediately lets us know that there are a million reasons why we should hear about her life. As a child star, she was a strong rival of both Grace Kelly (was she ever a child star?) and Shirley Temple. She was hosted a very strange cooking show and she became the spokeswoman for a product that I am not naming here. She maintains that she is responsible for the glamour of Hollywood and when she dies, it will die with her.
There are thirteen musical numbers in the show that Leddick also wrote and this is a show that you have to see to believe. It is quite simply great fun.
