My friend Margaret from Minnesota has just left after a lovely 5-day visit in which I made her eat too much and watch too many movies and become addicted to "In Treatment." (And now she will have to undergo withdrawal because she doesn't have HBO back home).

Margaret and I are the same age and at one point we became the founding (and only) members of the Margaret O'Brien Fan Club. There is practically no one left who can recite the titles of M O'B movies; when Margaret and I die, this bit of 1940's trivia will be lost..

Here is what she brought me as a gift:


Margaret journeyed here from St. Paul but that is not what the title of this post refers to. No, it is Margaret O'Brien's first movie, made when she was four years old, a true tear-jerker. There are few people living who remember it.

How wonderful to see the fruits of one's labor come alive, and in many respects, transform the lives of so many.
" I'll have grounds
More relative than this—the play's the thing
Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King."

It must be wonderful to see the characters you created standing right in front of you. Everything begins in the mind.
