It Had To Be Christmas
As a special holiday treat on Tuesday, November 29, showbiz stars George and Lizette Bettinger are featured again on Movie Addict Headquarters. They read the first chapter of IT HAD TO BE US, a romantic memoir now being adapted for the screen. They play co-authors Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence in this audio version of Chapter One, which deals with two important Christmases for the estranged Lawrences. How does Christmas help bring these two together after being divorced for almost twenty years? Listen in and find out! Also, host Betty Jo Tucker (aka Elizabeth Lawrence) will give an update of the filming progress.
The Bettingers are a fun couple with a passion for bringing back the Golden Era of radio on their popular “Mom & Pop Shop Show” which airs on Tune In Radio in Florida each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. George is an actor, comedian, producer, writer and director. He’s won acclaim for his uncanny impressions including Groucho Marx, George Burns and the Three Stooges but may be best known as the voice of the red M&M. Lizette is a versatile actress and soprano singer with experience at the Metropolitan Opera. George and Lizette are truly Mr. & Mrs. Showbiz.
IT HAD TO BE US won first place in the Ebook category at the Hollywood Book Festival for its potential to be transferred to other mediums such as film, radio and TV. With the help of BlogTalkRadio listeners during the launch of the Kindle version a few years ago, the memoir hit Number One in the “Divorce” category for Kindle Ebooks. The memoir also caught filmmaker Misha Zubarev’s interest,who is now in the process of adapting the romantic memoir for the screen.
Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence donate their author royalties from IT HAD TO BE US (published by the Long Story Short Publishing Company) to the IMAGINATION LIBRARY, a children’s literacy program sponsored by the Dollywood Foundation.
