      Hi, Scott. Hope you don't mind my asking... although your book is about John Wayne, John Ford and Ward Bond... is there anything about Ben Johnson in it? I am REALLY looking forward to reading Three Bad Men. It's going to be an amazing year for Ford-related books.

      Hi All,

      I have introduced Scott to some other of my lists, but for now, JWMB is the only one who has any kind of a discount....it isn't even on Scott's Facebook page.


      He will write ANYTHING people would like as an inscription!


      He offers a 10% discount on the book to people who want to buy them directly from him.

      Checks to made out to Scott Nollen: 8660 W ANVIL CT MOBILE, AL 36695 ($49.95 less 10%) + $5.50 Priority Mail / Paypal to:
      [email protected] ($49.95 less 10%) + $5.50 Priority Mail + $2.00 PP fee

      So, if you pay by check, it is $50.50. If you pay by Paypal to nollen@att.net it is $52.50

      If you order anywhere except as a JWMB member, it will be $55.45 or by Paypal $57.45.
      Sheesh, think I got that right. This is a limited time offer. I didn't take any chances, LOL! KEITH

      Hi Scott

      Like many others welcome to the board, and like many others we are looking forward to the publication of your book.

      One question some years ago I bought the Harry Carey jnr book Company of Heroes and got into trouble with his wife because (a) I paid for it in cash.
      (b) I paid for it in English money and (c) I didn't pay enough for the packing and posting.

      I would be grateful, in order not to make the same mistake, if you could give me some idea of the cost of postage to UK.

      Regards

      Arthur

      Hi Scott, Wonder if you could give us your idea of a "character actor". I know what is is supposed to be, but how do you consider Ward Bond's role in The Searchers, where he was quite prominent and obviously the "boss" of all including Ethan Edwards, as a character actor and not a "co-star". What is the difference? Is it due to agents and contracts........did Ward not care what he was billed as? Just curious. Thanks MH, KEITH

      In Hollywood, a "character actor" has always been a solid actor who can play a wide variety of supporting roles, and ones who could make it look effortless have often been taken for granted. Ward was often taken for granted, but he was one of the finest ACTORS period. A character actor can also be a "co-star." THE SEARCHERS is a good example of this, with Ward being so prominent.

      Howdy Scott, and welcome to the JWMB! We're glad to have you here with us, and for sure we're all looking forward to reading Three Bad Men!

      Thanks for asking about postage to the UK. I think around $12 with the new 1st class international rates. That's just a good guess, as the book isn't out yet, and I don't know the exact weight. All the best--Scott



      OK Scott, so for those sending you the money for the discount and the inscription and autograph, the total to the UK would be another 6.50 or
      $57 check and $59 Paypal? We have a lot of UK members. In fact, we have folks in France, Ireland, LOL, lots of places over the big water.

      Very much LOVE seeing Ward Bond Actor rather than well known character actor Ward Bond. NICE. KEITH

      Well, lost another post, so here we go again. I just bought two of Scott Nollen's other books, (he has written 18). They are on two people I knew, Frank Sinatra and his great friend Jilly, who was quite the character. I have read an excerpt for Jilly, and it sounds JUST like him. It covers a great many of his celebrity friends...other people I also knew and has previously unpublished private pictures. Only about 5 of these Jilly books left. It also covers his fiery death caused by a drunk driver....unbelievably he was driving into the Country Club where I used to be pro,and the other driver lived on the 18th hole of the course there, (very glad it wasn't one of my old members). The Sinatra one is all about his films and what was going on in his life when they were made and also has unpublished pictures. Can't wait for my specially inscribed and signed copies. KEITH

      Forgot to mention, I have ordered my Three Bad Men book also. Just found out that Amazon ordered a huge quantity of the book and can now sell it cheaper than Scott can buy it from his publisher. So, it can be bought there, but it won't have the personal inscription that you chose or the autograph. Also, Scott makes absolutely no money from that sort of thing. After years of research, collecting unpublished pictures and the like......he gets absolutely nothing....seems criminal to me, but publishing books has changed a great deal these days due to companies such as Amazon. For those of you who looked when we first posted all of this.....Amazon was selling the book for about $49, and Scott gave us, and only us, a discount......now that Amazon has bought that huge shipment, the price is way down. A good many of us are still buying the book from him as, not only is it the fair thing to do, but........LOL, we want our personal inscriptions and autographs. Since this is the first book that gives Ward Bond what has been long overdue, plus really ties him in with Duke and Pappy as was the real case, I imagine it will be a great seller.
      As I said, Some of us have chosen to pay the extra $9 or so for the inscription. Hope the rest of you do also. Scott is still waiting to answer any questions you may have about the book as well as any of the other books he has written.

      If the "topic" rule will allow, he can put the titles of his other books on here for you to see. There are two on Karloff which should interest quite a few out there, LOL, plus one, I think on Paul Robeson, Jethro Tull, Louis Armstrong.....lots more. KEITH
