The Librarian, Hammersmith’s Algebra, and the Sailor’s Snug Harbor
Louise Byrdie Dantzler was eighteen-years-old and living with her widowed mother in Long Beach, California when she entered a bathing beauty contest. One of the judges of the contest was actress Esther Ralston, who was scheduled to play the mother of Peter Pan in a movie that was to begin shooting soon after this bathing beauty contest.
The young bathing beauty won second prize, and judge Esther Ralston later took her to meet the director of the movie that was about to go into production. She was signed to a Paramount Pictures contract, and became actress Mary Brian, with the leading role of Wendy in her first motion picture.
Mary Brian starred and co-starred in Paramount Pictures for eight years, until her contract with Paramount Pictures was prematurely ended. Paramount broke the contracts of three ‘sweet and innocent’ female actors because they wanted to start featuring more glamourous and sophisticated female characters. Along with Mary Brian, Paramount dumped Fay Wray and Jean Arthur. Go figure.
In this hilarious romantic spy adventure that was NOT produced by Paramount Pictures, Mary Brian is a cold and professional librarian with eyeglasses as thick as a cookie. Four Navy buddies are on shore leave for a week, and their fast-talking, bragging leader thinks he is God’s gift to women. His three buddies decide to prank him into betting $25 that he cannot get the meek librarian to go on a date with him to the boisterous Navy saloon called The Crow’s Nest. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
