Loretta Swit Charges For Autographs!
Someone on the "All That Chat" theater board posted that after a performance of the off-Broadway show 'LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE', he asked LORETTA SWIT to autograph a 'M*A*S*H' cast photo that had been signed by everyone except her.
Surprisingly, Swit asked for $25 to do so! "Never mind," said the guy, distressed.
Well, I contacted the show's publicist, Molly Barnett, asking for a response, and she said she'd give me one for $25.
Kidding. Here's what she said for free: "Loretta has a policy that she'll gladly sign 'Love, Loss, and What I Wore' Playbills after the show for free, but any other merchandise or memorabilia related to other projects, she handles the same way she does if she gets requests by mail and via her website and charges $20-$25, which goes directly to her Humane charities."
I wonder what she charges for a "Hot Lips" imprint.
