The Youngest Profession: Hope TCM plays it again
I stayed home sick one day last week and stumbled upon "The Youngest Profession" staring Virginia Weidler. I didn't see the very beginning, but I immediately became hooked and watched the whole thing. I loved the way the real-life stars of the era played themselves. It was fun to see how crazy teenagers acted in those days--but they were respectful and not destructive or rude. I'm a high school teacher, so I see 21st century teenagers every day. Some things haven't changed much, but some have. I loved Weidler in "The Women" too (one of my all-time favorites) so I was pleased to find this little gem. I'll be watching for it.
VIRGINIA WEIDLER - TALENTED YOUNG LADY!
"The Youngest Profession" is listed as a Suspense movie, but I believe Comedy would be more accurate. It was quite entertaining watching Joan Lyons, President of the Guiding Stars Fan Club with her group's members pursuing the latest star to come to town. They would stoop to any level to meet and greet a star and collect their autograph. A super part to this story was the use of their REAL names - Lana Turner, Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Robert Taylor & William Powell. They were all most gracious when meeting with the young ladies. Agnes Moorehead of "Bewitched" fame, was the prickly and ornery governess Ms. Featherstone. Cute movie - good way to pass an afternoon.
The Youngest Profession, is an awesome movie!!
I was able to catch part of this movie yesterday. It is a very good movie. Young girls go around chasing film stars for their autographs. It has cameos from Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon and William Powell. The young girl in the title role also starred in 2 of my other favorites, The Philadelphia Story and The Women.
