“ARE MODERN KIDS ON THE SKIDS? – Gale Storm and Jimmy Lydon, stars of the new motion picture, ‘Tom Brown’s School Days’, demonstrate the latest craze infecting American youth, ‘rug-cuttin’ ’. Youngsters insist that this new fad is dancing, but their bewildered elders are not so sure. 7/19/40”
I normally don’t read Hollywood biographies but picked up a copy of Confessions of a Prairie Bitch when it was recommended to me, and now I’m recommending it to you. Former child actress Alison Arngrim is an excellent writer and she tells her (at times) depressing story with humor and frankness. You don’t have to be a fan of the show to appreciate this funny, sad, and inspiring memoir.
