Press Release

Susan Marg

Cowgirl Jane Press



800px-Chaplin_the_gold_rush_bootSusan Marg is launching a Facebook fan page for Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish on Following their Dreams, Making it Big, and Surviving in Tinseltown.

For every “like”, comments count, too, she is donating a penny to the Motion Picture and Television Fund (MPTF).  Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and D.W. Griffith, also founders of United Artists, started this private, non-profit charity over 90 years ago to help those in the movie industry who had fallen on hard times.  It hasn’t gotten any easier.  Today the fund serves more than 150,000 people annually with healthcare and other social services.

Charlie Chaplin once said, “We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery.”

If you love silents, film noir, westerns, or some other genre on the silver or small screen, Marg asks you to like her Facebook page and to ask your friends to ask their friends. The pennies will add up.


Susan Marg is the author of Las Vegas Weddings: A Brief History, Celebrity Gossip, Everything Elvis, and the Complete Chapel Guide, published by HarperCollins.  Since she has moved her field of focus from the City of Lights to the City of Angels, her interest in popular culture has only intensified.
