She had been a moderately successful actress of stage and screen for years before being offered the chance to write the column Hedda Hopper's Hollywood for the Los Angeles Times in 1938. In the McCarthy era she named suspected communists. Hopper continued to write gossip to the end, her work appearing in many magazines and later on radio.Hopper debuted as host of her own radio program, The Hedda Hopper Show, November 6, 1939. Sponsored by Sunkist, she was heard on CBS three times a week for 15 minutes until October 30, 1942. From October 2, 1944 to September 3, 1945, Armour Treet sponsored a once-a-week program. On September 10, 1945, she moved to ABC, still sponsored by Armour, for a weekly program that continued until June 3, 1946. Hopper moved back to CBS October 5, 1946, with a weekly 15-minute program, This Is Hollywood, sponsored by Procter & Gamble. It ran until June 28, 1947.Expanding to 30 minutes on NBC, she was host of a variety series, The Hedda Hopper Show, broadcast from October 14, 1950 to November 11, 1950 on Saturdays, then from November 19, 1950 to May 20, 1951 on Sundays, This program featured music, talk and dramatized excerpts from movies with well-known guests, such as Broderick Crawford doing a scene from All the King's Men.On January 10, 1960, a television special, Hedda Hopper's Hollywood, aired on NBC. Hosted by Hopper, guest interviews included a remarkably eclectic mix of past, current and future stars: Lucille Ball (a longtime friend of Hopper), Francis X. Bushman, Liza Minnelli, John Cassavetes, Robert Cummings, Marion Davies (her last public appearance), Walt Disney, Janet Gaynor, Bob Hope, Hope Lange, Anthony Perkins, Debbie Reynolds, James Stewart, and Gloria Swanson.Hopper had several acting roles during the latter part of her career, including brief cameo appearances as herself in the movie Sunset Boulevard (1950) and The Patsy (1964), as well as episodes of The Martha Raye Show, I Love Lucy, The Ford Show, Starring Tennessee Ernie Ford, and The Beverly Hillbillies, starring Buddy Ebsen. Her autobiography, From Under My Hat (Doubleday, 1952) was followed by The Whole Truth and Nothing But (1962), also published by Doubleday. She remained active as a writer until her death, producing six daily columns and a Sunday column for the Chicago Tribune syndicate, as well as writing articles for celebrity magazines such as Photoplay.Hopper was a fervent Republican. In 1944, for instance, she spoke before the massive rally organized by David O. Selznick in the Los Angeles Coliseum in support of the Dewey-Bricker ticket as well as Governor Earl Warren of California, who would become Dewey's running mate in 1948 and later the Chief Justice of the United States. The gathering drew 93,000, with Cecil B. DeMille as the master of ceremonies and Walt Disney as one of the speakers. Others in attendance included Ann Sothern, Ginger Rogers, Randolph Scott, Adolphe Menjou, Gary Cooper, Eddy Arnold, and William Bendix. Despite the good turnout at the rally, most Hollywood celebrities who took a public position sided with the Roosevelt-Truman ticket.Hopper strongly supported the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) hearings and was a guest and speaker of the Women's Division at the 1956 Republican National Convention held in San Francisco to renominate the Eisenhower-Nixon ticket.SHOWS LISTHedda Hopper Show 40-12-03 Life Story Of Dorothy Lamour - Pt 1Hedda Hopper Show 40-12-05 Life Story Of Dorothy Lamour - Pt 2Hedda Hopper Show 40-12-07 Life Story Of Dorothy Lamour - Pt 3Hedda Hopper Show 40-12-10 Life Story Of Dorothy Lamour - Pt 4Hedda Hopper Show 40-12-12 Life Story Of Dorothy Lamour - Pt 5Hedda Hopper Show 40-12-14 Life Story Of Dorothy Lamour - Pt 6Hedda Hopper Show 45-04-30 Guest - Charles LaughtonHedda Hopper Show 50-02-15 Guest - Richard NixonHedda Hopper Show 50-10-14 Guest - Helen BroderickHedda Hopper Show 50-10-21 Guest - William HoldenHedda Hopper Show 50-10-28 Guest - Shelly WintersHedda Hopper Show 50-11-04 Guest - Joseph CottonHedda Hopper Show 50-11-11 Guest - Audie MurphyHedda Hopper Show 50-11-19 Guest - Andy DevineHedda Hopper Show 50-11-26 Guest - Carl BrissonHedda Hopper Show 50-12-03 Guest - Dinah ShoreHedda Hopper Show 50-12-10 Guest - Howard DuffHedda Hopper Show 50-12-17 Guest - Raymond MasseyHedda Hopper Show 50-12-31 Guest - Jean HersholtHedda Hopper Show 51-01-07 Guest - Gordon MacRae, Andre Previn, Richard ConteHedda Hopper Show 51-01-14 Guest - Dean JaggerHedda Hopper Show 51-01-21 Guest - Fernando LamasHedda Hopper Show 51-01-28 Guest - Mel TormeHedda Hopper Show 51-02-04 Guest - Mike RomanoffHedda Hopper Show 51-02-11 Guest - Carolina CottonHedda Hopper Show 51-02-18 Guest - Tony MartinHedda Hopper Show 51-02-25 Guest - David NevinHedda Hopper Show 51-03-04 Guest - Roy RogersHedda Hopper Show 51-03-18 Guest - J.
