CROSSROAD OF THE STARS is a journey within the entertainment world presenting more than 300 events from the years 1940 until 2005. Our travel begins when Clark Gable befriends Stan Sarniske at his Blue Front Cafe in 1940. Taking Clark's advice, Stan began working in security at M.G.M. Studio in 1942. Stan details his years at M.G.M. from 1942 until 1983. He worked his way up the ladder to Inspector, Assistant Chief of Security, and Acting Chief of Security. Furthermore, after M.G.M. sold Lot 2, the new owners of Lot 2 made Stan their manager for years on a handshake. In 1971 Stan was asked by Allen Rivkin to help correct problems he had with the Writers Guild of America, West Film Society. Stan's personal interaction with each writer from 1971 until 2005 resulted in a special chapter written on what the professional screenwriter desires in their movie viewing experience. His very well developed observational skills enabled Stan to create his three stages of development theory that occurs deep within the writer. In 1975 Stan was asked by Marie Windsor to develop the security rules and procedures for the newly created Screen Actors Guild, West Film Society. His observation of the actor was more thoroughly analyzed during this period while he personally greeted each actor to the private screening room. Stan's two-part evaluation of the actor is the result of his sixty-four years within the entertainment industry. The final chapter of this book presents major lessons learned from some of the most interesting individuals associated with the entertainment industry. CROSSROAD OF THE STARS is a journey whose finale bequeaths hope for the future of civilization. Its final vision is for civilization to transcend to a higher level of consciousness through the use of the media and film.
