Kingsley is described as "a fierce guardian of one of the 1980s' most precious commodities--access to the stars." Well, nothing has changed in the standard operating procedure of the celebrity publicity world! During the 1950s and 1960s, we publicists, too, guarded that precious commodity. But we weren't fierce--in fact, we were pussycats compared to the apparent tigers today. And we had a realistic goal: mutual cooperation between press and press agents--neither much good without the other.
