Barbara Payton Movie?



I hear from my Christa co-author John O'Dowd that there is more than a little interest in making a movie about Barbara Payton, the tragic actress whose career he so compassionately chronicled in his BearManor Media book, KISS TOMORROW GOODBYE. Rumor has it that 24 star Elisha Cuthbert would play Barbara. This is, of course, nowhere near a done deal but for what it's worth...I can see it.

She looks more like Susan Oliver to me. Maybe they should get her for that movie.

Today is Jessica Lange's birthday.

She was born in Cloquet, Minnesota - population 11,000. (I looked her up earlier this morning as part of a quiz).

Now you write about Barbara Payton, who was born in Cloquet, Minnesota.

Never heard of the town before this morning, and now I've seen it twice.
