(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
Went to see “Smilin’ Through” with Norma Sherer and Frederic March – Very sweet and sad! Quite a few snifflers in the audience and I would have been one but I knew what was coming in the story and called up the old self control!
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
British Parliament was dissolved and a general election called for November 14.
The underground miners’ strike ended in South Wales.
A new Popeye.
