Olive Borden was an American actress in silent and early talking movies.  She was nicknamed "the Joy Girl" after a 1927 movie of that title.  She served in the Women's Army Corps in World War II, was wounded, and received a military citation.  She was unsuccessful in resuming her film career after the war and ended her days scrubbing floors in a women's mission in the skid row area of Los Angeles.  Pretty shabby treatment for a war veteran and former star.  This is a Fox Films publicity photo.

Si è tenuta in questi giorni la Milano Book Fair, la prima fiera del libro di Milano, amorevolmente soprannominata “Fiera della fuffa”, un po’ perché è organizzata da un editore a pagamento (MJM), un po’ perché la maggior parte degli editori erano a pagamento, un po’ perché sono stati listati editori NON presenti in fiera e poi anche un po’ perché alla fine è un aborto in partenza.

Come promesso il resoconto della giornata, lo trovate su SCRITTEVOLMENTE.
