Marilyn Monroe, Dennis Weaver and Marlon Brando's former publicist, 92-year old legend is in a Red Carpet League of his Own

age of 92.

Hollywood Publicists Scores Big in Six Events In One Day. 92-year-old Hollywood publicist Julian Myers competed in the California State Senior Meet June 5th at CalTech in Pasadena in track and field in his age group and won five first places and a second “to popularize AmigoDay,” Myers said.
AmigoDay is the holiday he and his wife Patsy founded six years ago: “Just greet anyone anywhere, your way, any month’s first Sunday.”
The Senior Meet was open to anyone from anywhere so it fit AmigoDay’s criterion for sponsorship and Myers’ participation.
Myers was second in the 50-meter, tied for first in the 100, won the 200, 400 and 1,500 meter and long jump.
Julian Myers after running 90 miles from San Diego to LA invited 390 of his best friends to his 90th birthday party that ends on the same day as the LA Marathon.
He won the 1,500- meter American championships in 2006, 2007, 2008 and “probably 2009" which he scored at the Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah. Each year he participates in six events in St. George in one day (“for AmigoDay”), and will again October 6th.
Julian is still active in Hollywood publicity, having graduated from USC in 1939 in Cinema, and publicized Elvis Presley, John Wayne and other stars at 20th-Fox beginning in 1949. Julian is a former board member of Entertainment Publicists Professional Society (EPPS) and one of the most trusted and known in celebrity circles and entertainment publicity.
He admits, “The favorite client of Julian Myers Public Relations today is AmigoDay. Not a sexy star or $1,000,000 account, but Patsy’s and my dream.” Julian has worked with some of the best in the film and entertainment industry and has represented Marilyn Monroe, Dennis Weaver to Marlon Brando to name a few legends.
