La regina dell'amore e della bellezza

It's here : "The Korshak Chronicles". No need to wait for Gus Russo's book on cousin Sidney Korshak or the Paramount film "The Man Who Kept Secrets" (directed by William Friedkin, produced by Robert Evans and Brian Grazer, screen play by James Ellroy). Learn about the members of the Korshak family who blazed (literally, in one case) the trail for Sidney. Among the family members to be featured: Max (the first Korshak lawyer); Charlie (the worst Korshak lawyer); David (liked to play with matches) and David's son Clarence (the only Korshak I'm aware of who actually killed somebody) and Erle, the science fiction maven.

Right: The Queen of Love and Beauty (and her humble servant) in Florence on 31 January, 1997, during the course of her annual Tuscan junket.
Known in her Princess days as Judy Lynn Korshak, the Queen is an expert practitioner of recreational retail.
Given the demise of her cousins Sidney and Marshall, she's now the capo of this fascinating family. (Check your favorite British tabloid for the latest on cousin Charlotte Korshak---born in Los Angeles on 16 August, 1979, she's the daughter of Sidney's son Harry).
