Hollywood’s divorces and nightclub battles always manage to get on the front pages. It’s just too bad the public doesn’t get an equal chance to learn about the topic of conversation that really interests the stars. Go to any Hollywood party and you will hear very little discussion about the newest marital rift or the latest cafe battle. But on every side you hear stories about babies, babies babies — by proud parents.

On the bestseller list, fiction “History of Rome Hanks,” “Razor’s Edge,” “Leave Her to Heaven,” “Strange Fruit” and “Ride With Me.”

Nonfiction: “The Time for Decision,” “I Never Left Home,” “Anna and the King of Siam,” “Yankee From Olympus” and “Basic History of the United States.”

  1. Joan lMcCracken looks like “Red Hot Riding Hood” from MGM the year before: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xae8g6_tex-avery-red-hot-riding-hood-1943_fun

    And she later married and influenced Bob Fosse, but died early.
