Walter WinchellWalter Winchell is the original gossip reporter of Hollywood. His wit and repertoire was highly respected and at the height of his prestige he could reportedly make or break a star. Some of his famous quotes are Walter Winchell at microphone"The way to become famous fast is to throw a brick at someone who is famous," and "Remember that nobody will ever get ahead of you as long as he is kicking you in the seat of the pants."

Winchell made his radio debut in 1930 over WABC in New York. By 1948, his program received higher ratings than Fred Allen or Jack Benny. Winchell had been a supporter of Senator Joseph McCarthy's anticommunism efforts, and his popularity suffered when the nation turned its back on the senator. Walter Winchell eventually died friendless and along in 1972.

As a man who reported about fame and forture and the loss there of, he was also quickly forgotten after the peak of his career and died alone with his only attendant at his funeral was he daughter.

    I also have the movie with Walter Winchell and Ben Bernie, Alice Faye, Patsy Kelly, Alice Faye Ned Sparks and so on. The movie was good and set back in the 30's. They had raids about a couple of times. I am a movie buff and I am old fashioned at heart for movies and songs. I am 62. I am Roger.

    Fast talking Walter Winchell had an 18 year relationship with Jergens Lotion, making the two inseparable in the eye of his audiences. Though not a serious journalist, Winchell became the most popular and powerful reporter of his time. A serious news report would often be followed by Hollywood gossip stories. Although he was called “the best reporter in the United States,” his news reports were not always well informed, full of mistakes and careless slips. At 215 words per minute, Walter sat poised at the radio microphone with his reporter hat on and one hand clicking away at a telegraph bug (adding ambience to the news report). Although newsman on the surface, he was first and foremost an entertainer, with a vaudeville background and a showman mentality. And now, “Who, what, where, when, why? From the man American listens to most – Walter Winchell!”
