Ward Morehouse lll’s Father Had a Real Life Bear At The Plaza Hotel

The Bear Who Lived At The Plaza

The Bear Who Lived at The Plaza is the true-life story of a small brown bear, from Bangkok, Thailand, who lived at New York’s Plaza Hotel. The book is also the story of Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, George M. Cohan, Eugene O’Neill and other American show business greats who were interviewed and profiled by the late New York Sun drama critic Ward Morehouse at his home in New York’s Plaza Hotel and other places both near and far.

Bangkok the Bear is symbolic of a vanished Broadway and Hollywood era where its stars were still put on pedestals and their antics told with loving reverence.

Author Ward Morehouse III, recounts his own interviews with Miss Hepburn for Reuters and the New York Post and his life growing up in a family as famous and interesting as some of the stars it worked with. His “Stepmother,” Jean Dalrymple, was one of Broadway’s first women producers; and his mother, Joan Marlowe, co-publisher and editor of The Theater Information Bulletin for half a century.” Ward Morehouse III, has written 12 books on the history of hotels and theater including Millennium Biltmore: A Grand Hotel Born of Hollywood Dreams and two previous books on New York’s Plaza Hotel.

Ward Morehouse talks to www.t2conline.com about his new book The Bear Who Lived At The Plaza. The book is now available at Amazon and Bear Manor Media
