Ten Days that Shook the World, or, The Spy Who Loved Me

On July 2, 1934 cosmetologists gathered and decided what the perfect face might be like. They decided that on the perfect face, the length of the face would equal three times the length of the nose. The width between the eyes would be the width of one eye. The upper and lower lips would be the same width. Eyebrows would be symmetrical, conforming to the line of the nose. The space from the lower eyelid to the upper eyelid would be the same as the space from the upper eyelid to the eyebrow. Each eyebrow would begin on the same line as the corner of the eye nearest the nose, and finally, the width of the face across the cheeks would equal two lengths of the nose.

There was only one actress in Hollywood that could measure up to this formula, and Sylvia Sidney’s face was used to illustrate the perfect face, with measurements on the photo to prove the concept. Hollywood makeup artists would use their talents to make other faces look like Sylvia’s perfect face, making the face of other actresses look thinner or wider, making the eyebrows correct, and so on.

Sylvia Sidney, the daughter of Russian and Romanian immigrants, was born in the Bronx, and in this adventure plays a half Chinese, half American spy. She made her film debut as a chorus girl in the same movie that Barbara Stanwyck made her film debut in as a fan dancer. Silvia Sidney’s career spanned six decades as a major female leading actor in the 1930’s, and 1940’s motion pictures, and starring in numerous Broadway shows. During the golden era of television, in addition to appearances in motion pictures, Sylvia appeared in the pilot television episode of WKRP in Cincinnati, and television shows like Magnum, P.I., Fantasy Island, The Love Boat, and too many more to mention.

This adventure begins in Japan before World War Two, when most Americans believed that Japan was a good friend. Newspaper reporter Nick, played by James Cagney, stumbles upon a secret document that lays out war plans for America and full conquest of the world. When he tries to make the document public, he becomes an enemy of the Japanese government, and his life is in peril. Fortunately, he meets a beautiful woman who is half-Chinese and half-American who wants to help him, played by Sylvia Sidney.

Unfortunately, the lady with the perfect face is really in the employ of Premier Tanaka, and she is ordered to seduce the American reporter and steal the secret document from him. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
