The Young Nancy Reagan (Modern Screen, 1951)

Published in a Hollywood fan magazine some months prior to her engagement with Screen Actors Guild President Ronald Reagan (1911 2004) was this 1951 profile of the actress Nancy Davis (born Anne Frances Robbins: 1921 - 2016). A gossipy yet informative article that covers her days at Smith College, her relationship with capitol "H" Hollywood stars Alla Nazimova and Walter Houston, the eight films in which she had acted in up to that time and the various assorted reactions she instilled in such directors as William Wellman and Dore Schary.

A 1942 article by the young Ronald Reagan can be read here...


Shirley MacLaine at 22 (Modern Screen, 1956)

Arriving in Hollywood by way of "The Trouble with Harry" in 1955, and cute as buttons - Shirley MacLaine (b. 1934) was the adopted "little sister" of the Rat Pack, that odd movie star whose sensitive skin burned too easily in the California sun and one of the few starlets who was actually capable of sewing her own clothes.


Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner To Wed (Modern Screen, 1951)

Back in the day, some wise old sage once remarked:

"It's Frank Sinatra's world; we only live in it."

-in 1951, Nancy Sinatra certainly thought these words were double-dipped in truth; married to "The Voice" since 1939, she tended to their three children devotedly, yet she was served with divorce papers nonetheless in order that "Ol' Blue Eyes" could go keep house with the twice-married starlet Ava Gardner (1922 1990). The attached article will tell you all about it; it's a juicy one - filled hearsay, innuendo and the knowing words of a Vegas odds maker as to whether the marriage will last:

"Will Frank turn out to be a better husband than Mickey Rooney or Artie Shaw? Will Ava have more luck with him than Nancy had?"

(they divorced in 1957)
