Tom, son of Eugene and Fernita (McKillop) Goldrup, was born 1942 in Palo Alto, California, and raised in the historic town of Sonoma in that state. He made his acting debut in the role of Mr. Gibbs in his Sonoma, California high school play of "Arsenic and Old Lace", and continued on at Santa Rosa Junior College in productions including "She Loves Me", "Major Barbara". Following college, Tom worked with his screenwriter brother Ray Goldrup and actor brother Jim Goldrup in their own film production of "Vision of a Poet" in which Tom played the poet. Following a bit part in Five Bloody Graves (1970), filmed in Capitol Reef National Monument in Utah, Tom made his way to Hollywood and obtained an agent and attended the Ivor Francis acting workshop. After working in a CBS Playhouse ("Sadbird"), acting roles were hard to come by so he wrote a screenplay titled "Kelsey", with brothers Ray and Jim. Nothing came of this, but Ray went on to make a career writing for television and motion pictures. Tom left Hollywood in 1971 and settled in Santa Cruz County, California, where he has acted in a number of stage productions, including work with the noted Shakespeare Santa Cruz company.

He and brother Jim also co-produced and acted in several of their own productions (one being a play titled "The Last Bell" written by brother Ray), as well as with Mountain Community Theater. Tom has also worked in bit parts in several films made in the Santa Cruz area ("Out On A Limb", "Sudden Impact", etc) and performed as the hit-man Otto in an unreleased film titled "The Magdaburg Affair" which was shot in 1988 in Utah. Tom and his three brothers became well aware of many of the feature players when they were growing up in the 1950s, with Ray and Tom being presidents of the official Don C. Harvey Fan Club. Years later (beginning in 1983) Tom and Jim began writing a four volume series of books titled "Feature Players: Stories Behind the Faces", which were based on personal interviews with many of the actors and actresses of the Golden era of Hollywood.

In 2002 they published their latest book, Growing Up on the Set: Interviews with 39 Former Child Actors of Classic Film and Television (Jefferson, NC: McFarland Publishing), which chronicled the lives and careers of 39 former child actors.

Writer/producer of "In God's Name," "Mr. Romance," "One Heartbeat" and "The Butler Did It." Was a speaker at the Fourth Annual Mormon Writers Conference, held in Lehi, Utah on 2 November 2002, at which she was one of the presenters of a session titled "When You Wish Upon A Star--How to Sell Your Books and Stories to Hollywood." Website: http://www.angelfire.com/ut/pepper/index.html Bio from her website:
By the time she reached college, she was doing handwriting analysis for businessmen and worked as a masseuse for a chiropractor (who happened to be the bishop of her church). Because of her willowy figure and 5' 10" height, Pepper's mother, Betty Morton, kept entering her in beauty pageants. Winning eleven pageants helped pay for her college education. In her senior year she opened Peppermill Designs, designing clothes for individuals, drill teams, rock bands, and restaurants.

Intuitive since childhood, Pepper has been "connected" by thought with her friends and can sense their emotions and conditions thousands of miles away. The psychology department of her college contacted Duke University about Pepper's psychic abilities. A professor was flown in from Duke and began extensive testing on Pepper using Zener cards, or ESP cards. She was found to be 88% accurate, guessing the cards one ahead the majority of the time. Soon numerous friends and family began asking for "readings." To this day Pepper quietly "reads" friends and family, but without charge.

Pepper met her husband, Skip Gregory, at college when she was a Dream Girl for a fraternity and booked his band for a college dance. Tired of dating, Pepper was grateful to finally meet someone who wasn't threatened by her ambition and was charmed by her shyness. Skip inspired and motivated her to write and record 10 songs, several non-fiction books, numerous magazine articles, five children's stories, two books on women, a documentary for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, which stars Michael O'Hearn as a superhero, public service commercials for the American Cancer Society and the American Red Cross, and five grief counselor training videos for The Sharing Place, a non-profit foundation for helping children cope with the death of a loved one.

In 1980, Skip encouraged her to write screenplays which is now her first and foremost love. Pepper has worked with Robert Redford's Sundance Film Festival, judged over 10,000 scripts for the New Century Writer's and Writer's at Work screenwriting contests, has been on many panels representing the film industry and taught screenwriting workshops. As the marketing/PR director for Redman Movies & Stories, she has been able to attend and assist filming of television programs such as "Touched By An Angel," "Promised Land" and feature films shot in Utah. Pepper has written scripts for "The New Love Boat," "Touched By An Angel," Disney, Saban, Showtime, Lifetime, and is an advocate for family films without violence. In 1998, she started Gregory Media Group. Her motto is "Movies Change Lives."

Currently, Pepper is a certified grief counselor, and working towards her Doctorate degree in psychology. Her latest books, When Someone Turns Into An Angel, a picture book for children, and Conversations With An Angel, for adults, have paved the way for more projects. She discovered she could communicate with coma patients and unborn children. Her doctoral thesis concerns coma patient therapy and pre-birth fetal studies. Several of her new books are about spirits contacting each other before they meet, and that love never dies.


Mary Ethel Gregory
Latter-day Saint. Born 27 November 1925, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Died 22 February 2005 in St. George, Utah from cancer. Birth name: Mary Ethel Eccles. Daughter of Albert Eccles, a well-known local theater actor. Voice work for the PBS documentary "Trail of Hope: The Story of the Mormon Trail" (1997). Small or supporting roles in the TV miniseries "Stephen King's "The Stand" (1994), the TV movies "Double Jeopardy" (1992), "The Deliberate Stranger" (1986), and "The Executioner's Song" (1982), and the movies "The Red Fury" (1984) and "Footloose" (1984). Obituary from Salt Lake Tribune (http://sltrib.com/entertainment/ci_2584191):
Mary Ethel Gregory, a Utah actress who had roles in "Footloose" and "The Executioner's Song," died Tuesday in St. George after a long battle with cancer. She was 79.

"She was a born actress, really," her husband, Herold (Huck) Gregory, said Thursday.

She was born Mary Ethel Eccles on Nov. 27, 1925, in Salt Lake City. She caught the acting bug from her father, Albert Eccles, a well-known local theater actor.

Gregory was class valedictorian at Granite High School, and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Utah. She earned her college tuition working on such local radio programs as KSL's "Potluck Party."

Among Gregory's favorite stage roles, her husband said, were as the drug-addicted Mary Tyrone in Eugene O'Neill's "Long Day's Journey Into Night" and the long-suffering Nurse Preen in "The Man Who Came to Dinner." When Nurse Preen told off her annoying patient, Gregory "got an ovation every night," her husband said.

She had a supporting role in "The Executioner's Song," the 1982 miniseries about murderer Gary Gilmore's last days before facing a Utah firing squad. Gregory played the wife of Gilmore's best friend, played by Eli Wallach, and in one scene danced with Gilmore (Tommy Lee Jones) in a prison waiting room.

Other notable film roles were as a secretary in "Footloose," and as a rock star's plague-stricken mother in "Stephen King's The Stand." She also played the grandmother who recounts the Mormon migration in "Legacy," the first movie screened in Salt Lake City's Joseph Smith Memorial Building.

Cancer in her lip ended her acting career, her husband said. One of her last acting jobs was providing a voice in the 1997 documentary "Trail of Hope: The Story of the Mormon Trail."

"I remember her putting a piece of tape over her lower lip, so it would mimic her lower lip, and she was able to pronounce clearly," said Lee Groberg, the documentary's director. "She was a lady of the finest, highest quality."

The Gregorys' son, Walt Gregory, also took up show business, recording (as The Walter & Hays Band) the '90s novelty song "The Mormon Rap."

Gregory is survived by her husband and son, daughters Vicki and Suellen, five grandchildren and a brother. Funeral services are set for noon Saturday at the Monument Park 20th Ward, 2795 E. Crestview Drive, Salt Lake City. Visitation is at the chapel tonight, 6 to 8 p.m., and for an hour before Saturday's services. A donation to charity is suggested in lieu of flowers.

Dorothy Gulliver
Born 6 September 1908, Salt Lake City, Utah. Died 23 May 1997, Valley Centre, California. Actress. Became well known due to her roles in series and serial movies from "College Love" (1929) to "The Last Frontier" (1932). Starred in a number of low budget Westerns such as "In Old Cheyenne" (1931) and "The Fighting Marshal" (1932). Then had increasingly smaller roles and bit parts, such as an uncredited part in "King Kong" (1933). Appeared in at least 75 films. At least 46 of these films were 20-minute short films that were actually episodes of the serial "The Collegians," in which she had the lead female role as "June Maxwell." Gulliver starred in episodes of "The Collegians" from 1926 to 1929. Although she left film acting in the early 1940s, she garnered critical acclaim for one last supporting role in John Cassavetes' Oscar-nominated movie "Faces" (1968). Bio from IMDb.com (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0347827/bio):
As an avid movie fan, Dorothy got her chance to go to Hollywood when she won a Salt Lake City beauty contest sponsored by Universal Pictures. Signed by Universal after her successful screen test, Dorothy became one of the many contract actors working in small bit parts. She became well known due to her roles in series and serial movies from 'College Love (1929)' to 'The Last Frontier (1932)'. Dorothy appeared in a number of low budget Westerns such as 'In Old Cheyenne (1931)' and 'The Fighting Marshal (1932)'. Over the years that she appeared in Westerns, she worked with actors such as Jack Hoxie, Hoot Gibson, Wild Bill Elliott and John Wayne. By 1933, Dorothy found that her roles had become so small that in the film 'King Kong (1933)', she would be credited as "Girl". For the rest of the decade, she appeared in but a handful of films which were mostly 'B' movie Westerns. After that, she left films.
Bio from All Movies Guide, written by Hans J. Wollstein (http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/filmography.html?p_id=29230&mod=bio):
With four starring serials (and two in supporting roles) to her credit, as well as a string of B-Westerns with the likes of Hoot Gibson and Jack Hoxie, brunette Dorothy Gulliver was an action heroine of some stature in the early days of sound. Yet she is remembered solely for The Collegians, a series of two-reel comedies produced by Universal (who also cast her in a 1929 feature version entitled College Love and voted her a 1928 WAMPAS Baby Star) and as a blowsy harridan in John Cassavetes' Faces (released 1968). This last comeback stunned Hollywood and there were whispers of a possible Academy Award. Alas, it was to be her final film. Gulliver is often credited with appearing as an old lady on a bus in the ill-fated Won Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976), but always vehemently denied any participation in the film.

A former Miss Salt Lake City, Dorothy Gulliver was ready to sign with Paramount when she won another contest, this time conducted by Universal, who sent her to Hollywood. She starred opposite George J. Lewis and Eddie Phillips in all 44 installments of The Collegians (1926-1929), set at imaginary Calford College and did yeoman duty opposite the established serial team of William Desmond and Eileen Sedgwick in both The Winking Idol (1926) and Strings of Steel (1926). She became a serial star in her own right five years later but not at Universal, who had dismissed her along with most of their B-Western units at the changeover to sound.

Picked up by low-budget Mascot Pictures, Gulliver played Tom Tyler's leading lady in the ten-chapter Phantom of the West (1931) and immediately established her potential as a latter-day serial queen. The Galloping Ghost (1931) with sports hero Harold "Red" Grange and The Shadow of the Eagle (1932), with John Wayne, followed and she co-starred opposite Lon Chaney Jr. (known at the time as Creighton Chaney) in RKO's sole attempt at serial making, The Last Frontier (1932).

A non-movie-involved accident curtailed this long string of action successes and when she returned it was in independently produced fare, such as Fighting Caballero (1935) with Rex Lease and Custer's Last Stand (1935), from ultra low-budget Stage and Screen, and her final chapterplay. She would do the odd B-movie until 1942, but then concentrated on her marriage to publicist Jack Proctor. (A previous union, with assistant director Chester De Vito, had ended in divorce.) Gulliver reportedly appeared in summer stock in Laguna, CA, but she was all but forgotten when Cassavetes surprisingly chose her to play a middle-aged woman picking up young hustlers in Faces. Cassavates' slow, methodic way of filming astonished the veteran B-movie performer, who also got a kick out of appearing opposite such modern method actors as Gena Rowlands and John Marley. "They were all such fine actors," she told the Los Angeles Times, "but I admit I was amazed when this actress asked 'What is my motivation for going to the phone?'"
