R.I.P. Stuart Duncan


Looming large in Christa Helm's life story was Stuart Duncan, who financed and produced her only starring motion picture--the unreleased LET'S GO FOR BROKE aka LADY J. Mr. Duncan died on April 30th at the age of 93. I got to speak to him on the phone once for about half an hour back in 2008. I would have loved to speak to him longer but the whole incident was, he felt, best forgotten. 

Duncan's better-remembered achievement was being one of the men behind bringing the ever-popular musical, GODSPELL, to the stage.
