Alexa Foreman: Available for Research

Alexa Foreman, an early member of the L.A. Daily Mirror brain trust, writes that after 20 years at TCM, she is now available to do research projects.

Alexa, a researcher and producer at TCM since it began in 1994,  writes that she has worked with Meryl Streep, Sir John Gielgud, Anthony Hopkins, Lee Grant, Claire Bloom and others on assembling Star of the Month pieces, and interviewed five of the original Munchkins for her documentary “Memories of Oz.” In addition, she has interviewed more than 100 stars, directors, writers and editors for the TCM Archival Project.

She is author of “Women in Motion,” published in 1983, and co-author of “In the Picture: Production Stills From the TCM Archives” from 2004, as well as contributor to “Leading Ladies, Leading Men and Leading Couples.”

Having been with TCM, Alexa is in the Atlanta area, where she can conduct research in a large number of archives not directly related to films, including a branch of the National Archives; the University of Georgia Special Collections, which houses the Johnny Mercer Collection; the Savannah College of Art Design, which has a large collection of Don Bluth material; and Emory University, which has the papers of Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes, Salman Rushdie and Alice Walker.

Further information is available upon request. You may email her here. Alexa is also on Linkedin.com.
