Capturing Her Pale Pink Soul

Josephine Owaissa Cottle was born in 1922 in Bloomington, Texas. She enjoyed ice skating, dancing and acting in school plays. In 1939 Hollywood mogul Jesse Lasky was searching for fresh, new talent for motion pictures. He organized a radio talent contest around the country, and little Josephine Cottle was the winner from Texas. Her mother escorted Josephine to Hollywood to compete with other local winners, and Josephine was selected as the national winner and given a chance to appear in motion pictures.

Two years later, when this movie was filmed, Josephine had already appeared in nine movies and was on her way to fame not in motion pictures, but as a television actor in My Little Margie (Watch My Little Margie on Jimbo TV —») and then The Gale Storm Show, Oh! Susanna (Watch the Gale Storm Show on Jimbo TV —»). Of course, her screen name was changed from Josephine Cottle to Gale Storm.

In this feel-good family comedy, she is Clare, the daughter of a big-city radio show producer and the teenage girl has a crush on an older artist. Her mom and dad are not happy with her attachment to the artist and decide to send her back to the small rural town in Iowa where her mother was raised.

Uncle Joe, her mother’s brother, is a bachelor farmer who likes to invent new contraptions, like an automatic dish washer. Clare will find that instead of chasing the big city artist, she will be chased by four farm boys with gleaming eyes and mischievous spirits. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
