MAKE-UP ARTIST DOT PONEDEL

Kelly J Kitchens Wickersham, Film Publicist at Kelly J Kitchens Media Relations…AND hostess of the FaceBook Page: Going to the TCM Classic Film Festival, planned a lovely event for our FaceBook group, which took place near the pool at the Roosevelt Hotel before the festival started in earnest. She invited Meredith Ponedel to speak to the group about her aunt, make-up artist Dot Ponedel, who worked with the legendary Judy Garland among many others. Ms. Ponedel was assisted by Woolsey Ackerman.

Here are some photos of classic film fans in rapt attention:
