Here is a magazine article that pretended to be a Hollywood fluff piece about the young actress Angela Lansbury (b. 1925), but the clever journalist saw fit to devote the majority of column space to the life and career of her grandfather: socialist George Lansbury (1859 1940), one time Member of Parliament and star of the British Labor Party.

"Old George was born, bred, lived and died among the poor of London, and never had any money, and yes, that goes for the time he was a member of His Britanic Majesty's Cabinet, too. But the folks down at the less desirable parts (we don't talk of slums) of the Bow and Bromley district of London where he lived could tell you what a difference it made to have a Cabinet Minister for a neighbor."
