The Adventures of Rosemond Wilding

My mother, Rosemary Rosamond, and my sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, died not know they were related to Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. With the discovery of Frank Taylor’s written words to Augustus John, where he mentions the two movies that would make Elizabeth a star, fate and the muses enjoin one of the most profound literary, cinematic, and artistic legacies in the world. John is related to Ian Fleming, and Wilding was a famous British actor who had a son by Rosemond. Christopher Wilding married Aileen Getty, thus all members of the Getty family are kin to Ian Fleming, and, can relate to James Bond, who is being raised from the dead – without success! I suggest, Liz Taylor be raised from the dead in a series of books and films. The Adventures of Rosemond Wilding can be at the Bohemian Vanguard in the culture wars that threaten many creative people.

I know there are a tons of curses with these related families. I have cast them aside to get to the Beautiful Roses. I have so much to do. I am looking for a woman co-author, and a female artist to help complete these visions. I am the Creator of this Rosy Enterprise.

 The Taylor family home in Hampstead, where Elizabeth was born in 1932, had previously been owned by Augustus John, whose paintings remained on the walls when the Taylors moved in. Elizabeth’s father Frank Taylor was an art dealer with a gallery located at 35 Old Bond Street in London. He established a close relationship with the Welsh artist. After relocating with his family to sunny California during the war, Frank opened an art gallery at the Château Elysée, but quickly relocated it to the more impressive Beverly Hills Hotel. It was at that location that such celebrities as Howard Duff, Vincent Price, James Mason, Alan Ladd, Hedda Hopper and Greta Garbo could be found selecting art for their own collections. Frank Taylor acted as John’s American agent for many years and was responsible for the artist’s popularity in the United States. The two men corresponded frequently. In a letter of 25 June 1943 Frank Taylor wrote to Augustus John: ‘We have settled down to living in California and our young daughter is by way of being a movie star, if you see a picture Lassie Come Home which will be released in September, she is in that with Roddy Macdowal, Nigel Bruce, Dame May Whitty and a lot of people, she did a bit in Jane Eyre and will be in The White Cliffs of Dover, also she may get the leading part in National Velvet, even if you are not a movie fan see the Lassie picture it is in colour and is beautiful’. Miss Taylor inherited this collection of works from her father, and they remained in her homes throughout her life. We are grateful to Rebecca John for her assistance in preparing the catalogue entries for these works.

Black Mask Authors

This extremely rare photo of the first west coast Black Mask get-together on January 11, 1936 captures possibly the only meeting of several of these authors.

Pictured in the back row, from left to right, are Raymond J. Moffatt, Raymond Chandler, Herbert Stinson, Dwight Babcock, Eric Taylor and Dashiell Hammett. In the front row, again from left to right, are Arthur Barnes (?), John K. Butler, W. T. Ballard, Horace McCoy and Norbert Davis.

Rosemary told me her father, Royal Rosamond, used to sail to the Channel Islands and camp with his friend, Dashiell Hammett who is seen standing on the right in the photo above.

Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney starred in “National Velvet” in 1944.

An 18-year-old Gene Tierney, who was then appearing on Broadway, was offered the role of Velvet Brown in 1939. Production was delayed, however, so Tierney returned to Broadway.[5] Much of the film was shot in Pebble Beach, California, with the most-scenic views on the Pebble Beach Golf Links[6] (with golf holes visible in the background).

Philip Boileau & Magazine Beauties

“Christine worked almost exclusively from photographs and
figures she cut from magazines like Vanity Fair and Vogue and
Glamour,” Garth recalls. “That’s why the women in her middle period
were so exquisite – the inspiration for them came from elegant
magazines that set the standard.”

Rena Easton looked for her sister to be on the cover of a famous magazine in July of 1970. Rena has a lot to do with the marriage of my late sister into the Benton family. American magazines held beauty contests for seventy years. Jessie Benton came close to being the Queen of America.

Rena and I were meant to get married. I should have put Robert and James in the back seat, like tramps, and kept them there. I should have taught Rena how to drive, and if James gave me any lip, I would kick him out of the car like his buddy Brian did to me when he kidnapped Rena.

Rena would have been kin to real artists and writers. She should have been the Muse of Muses, painted by many famous artists. Fate had much in store for this beautiful woman.

The artist, Philip Boileau, was the son Susan Taylor Virginia McDowell Benton, the sister of Jessie Benton, the daughter of Thomas Hart Benton, whose grandson was the famous artist of the same name, who was the cousin of Garth Benton, who married Christine Rosamond Presco, who is kin to Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, according to Jimmy Rosamond, the Rosamond Family genealogists.

Elizabeth Taylor appeared on the cover of LIFE magazine, and was on the cover of numerous magazines, as were the beautiful women painted by Boileau, that resemble Rosamond Women. No one, but I, knew of these relations after the death of the world famous artist ‘Rosamond’.

Recently two paintings by Andy Warhol of Liz Taylor sold for a hundred million dollars. ‘The Men In Her Life’ sold for $60,000,000 million dollars. Eddie Fisher is in this Warhol work, he the father of the actress , Carrie Fischer, who wrote a screenplay about my later sister, who is the mother of the artists, Drew Benton.

Christine and Drew are kin to John Fremont who was a co-founder of Republican Party, and its firs Presidential Candidate. Three years ago I registered as a Republican in order to stand in the way of the take over my kindred’s party by the Evangelical Cult.

“Though Howard may have chosen a life out of the spotlight, he still had his sister’s flair for the dramatic. When he heard that police had rounded up 13 vagrants who recently moved to the island from Berkeley, California, he decided to bail out the lot and allow them to live on his land rent free.

‘It’s your land and they’re now your hippies,’ Taylor reportedly told officials, when they complained about the new inhabitants on Ke’e Beach.”

James Bond of Carmel California 2

A Series by

John Presco

After the Bond movie ‘To Die And Live Again’ was a huge box office hit, a prominent member of the Royal Family made a very snide remark. Clint hired an attorney at the suggestion of his real-estate broker, Chaz Chazen, to seek an attorney. He recommended Ace Buckster, who owned a small airport in Carmel. This lawsuit got in the news and the attention of, Ian Saint James, a local mystic who did a genealogy of the Eastwood family.

“Wow! Clint is bullet proof. He’s American – and Hollywood Royalty! The Windsors have bitten off more than they can chew. They put a harpoon in – Moby Dick!”

Eastwood “American Royalty”

Posted on June 5, 2012 by Royal Rosamond Press

When I read that Clint Eastwood’s ancestors served on my great grandfather’s ship, the USS Constitution, I had forgiveness for my daughter who thinks life is a big popularity contest. She is not alone, so do the Royal Windsors who no longer have any real power. It’s all -show!

“To add to that, he also has maternal ancestors (James Morgan and Margery Hill) with a likely royal descent, linked to the late Princess of Wales, and Prince William and Prince Harry, the probable next King of England.”

Some sites on the web say the Eastwoods served on the sister ship, the USS Constellation. McGilligan says it was the USS Constitution. Both ships went to Tripoli to protect American shipping from a Islamic leader and fanatic who was holding Americans for ransom.

The USS Constitution is the oldest commisioned Navy vesel. Our President could have sent Old Irondsides to get Bin Laden, given him a broadside – just for show, like that actor and Texas braggart, George Bush, who dressed in costume and stood on the deck of a Navy vessel with a banner over his head that read;

“Mission Accomplished”

“Cut! that’s a wrap! You can go back to your ranch, ‘Smoke-em Out’ George, and play cowboy!”

President Obama sent the Navy Seals to an Islamic nation to dispatch the world’s No.1 terrorist! I, and Eastwood’s ancestors – are as proud as can be of this American Citizen. Right – Clint? Perhaps our President was born in Oakland, too, and is ashamed to admit it?

Clint’s billionaire golf buddies are trying to buy our democratic process, hide behind their money and mommy, verses fighting out in the open. Greedy Cowards – and Cheats! Clint is a fake blue collar kind of guy.

Clint’s cousin claims the Eastwoods are “America Royalty” after he proudly declares his kindred served in Tripoli where my kindred, Captain Issac Hull, commanded the USS Enterprise. Did the Eastwood’s hear my great grandfather’s voice, giving them orders as We the United and Free went after our real enemies?

It’s time for my family to be united – and all American families!

Are Amerians jealous of all that pomp and ceremony they beheld on the Queen’s Daimond Jubilee? My bad-ass kindred kicked Limy butt – and whooped the Islamic pirates, just like our President did. Behold – Americans at sea!

Hollywood Royalty

Posted on June 6, 2012 by Royal Rosamond Press

Clint Eastwood, and Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, are Hollywood Royalty. One could say they are the Emperor and Empress, and should be paired for life in the land of make believe. What is real, Clint and I share the same Oakland roots, and, Liz is in the Rosamond family tree.

Lindsay Lohan is going to play LIz in a movie. It will be a comeback for a woman who struggles with alcoholism, a theme promoted in the biography of Christine Rosamond Benton, who Liz and Christine’s kindred, Carrie Fisher, wrote a screenplay about. Richard Burton was a alcoholic, a bad boy in real life. Could Hollywood have created a Dirty Harry character for Richard? How about ‘Dirty Burty’ a bad-ass Brit with a big mouth and a blunderbuss.

“With any luck, she’ll also stay sober throughout!”

Who’s afraid of Lindsay Wolfe? How about a detective movie based upon Liz and Burt’s roles in ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? A married detective team wreck havoc in the underworld as they barhop across America and Europe taking on one tough guy after another – and destroying him! This good cop, bad cop couple, fight fire with fire – on the enemies turf, and on their terms! All the guest stars on the show will be escapees from rehab, or, on their way to rehab. We already got the show’s theme song!

Mr. and Mrs. Wolf. When this couple walks in a bar, the tough guys creep out the back, they on their way to rehab. They’ve had enough. Case closed.

xploiting Liz’s Abode

Posted on August 19, 2015 by Royal Rosamond Press


A bungalow belonging to my kindred, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, is being rented out.

A portrait by Warhol – Liz’s dead friend – adds to the bragging rights the guests may enjoy without being called “insane”. Money talks – even after death! Can you talk to her ghost?

Christine Rosamond’s beautiful women were hung by a Realtor as staging when her home in Pebble Beach was put on the market – after she was dead! Here is High Class Fashion Moda. If the Warhol is real, then it was auctioned off with Liz’s fashionable dresses. To hang the original artwork of the diseased artist, is to create a museum, that is not open to the public, and is there for the sole reason of making money. To decorate a room around the painting of a famous movie star – painted by an artist who made movies – is to create a Vain Stage where narcissists may roam in their need to be the center of attention.

Christine posed for her image ‘Cleo’. Here is the Phantom of the Opera creating a new stage for his star. I wonder if I can cash in? Perhaps I can conduct a tour? I could be on call to come give an art lesson to the guests. I could wear a tux and drink non-alcoholic wine.  Would they save the glass I drank from?
