July 30, 1936: Mary Astor testifies in her dispute with her ex-husband over custody of their daughter Marilyn.
One of my favorite blogs, conducted by one of my favorite bloggers, is “Self-Styled Siren” by Farran Smith Nehme. Her latest post is a conversation with Marilyn Roh about her mother, Mary Astor. It’s marvelous reading and I can’t recommend enough.
