The Doctor’s Daughter and the President’s Birthday Party

Two years after appearing as the heroine in this adventure, Marsha Hunt was invited to a birthday party for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. January 30, 1938 was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 56th birthday party at the White House. Three of the President’s favorite movie actors were invited to share in the celebration: Robert Taylor, Jean Harlow, and Marsha Hunt.

Marsha Hunt stayed after the party to chat with First Lady Eleanore Roosevelt and witnessed the President’s midnight radio broadcast where he first announced a fund drive to eliminate polio, calling it the “March of Dimes.” Marsha Hunt became good friends with Eleanor Roosevelt, often getting together with her to chat when they were in the same town.

During World War 2 Marsha Hunt sold war bonds around the country and was a hostess at the Hollywood Canteen for American Servicemen. She said, “Every hour they opened the doors at each end, and the thousand waiting outside would push the thousand inside out.”

In 1950 Marsha’s liberal views got her blacklisted as a Communist by conservative politicians, and she couldn’t find any work in Hollywood. She had gone to the Senate hearing with Humphrey Bogart, Myrna Loy, Lauren Bacall, Gene Kelley, John Huston and others. When they were all threatened with being called Communists and being blacklisted from working in movies, most of the actors apologized and recanted their advocacy for free liberal speech. Marsha Hunt did not and was blacklisted from working at any of the major studios. She decided to spend much of her free time with Eleanor Roosevelt, and as a result, she found a new passion.

Marsha Hunt founded and opened the first shelter for battered women in Los Angeles County, and founded three homeless shelters in the San Fernando Valley. In 1978 both houses of Congress passed a law honoring her concept of “Thankful Giving” during the annual fall Thanksgiving holiday. She founded the Southern California Freedom from Hunger Committee. She served on the advisory board of directors for the San Fernando Valley Community Mental Health Center, advocating for children affected by homelessness and mental illness. In 2015 Marsha Hunt was the first recipient of an annual award named after her called the “Hunt for Humanity Award.”

Marsha Hunt is now 100 years old, and still beautiful and vibrant. She will turn 101 years old on October 17, 2018. In this adventure, Marsha Hunt is the young daughter of a wild west doctor, and she is about to marry the bad guy of the story. Cowboy star Tom Keene is Randolph Gale, a gold mining engineer who will try mightily to convince her to marry him instead. His humorous sidekick is Robert Cummings, a young Easterner who may not survive the rugged West. The Indian Chief with the gold mine is movie star Buster Crabbe. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
