75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - September 16, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - September 16, 1937

This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

Since midway through 2010, a weekly update/comments blog entry began to appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Tuesday of the week, will continue, with links to these daily entries.

Here is the short entry for Thursday, September 16:

Adding.  To Carroll in pm. Shopped & saw "The Road Back." Bed early.

Here is the long entry for Thursday, September 16:

Worked on the adding machine most of the morning. In pm. went to Carroll alone. Got new dress, shoes, purse, underwear, shoes, socks, & saw "The Road Back." Home about 6:30. Cold again. Had a late supper. To bed early.

My comments: She sound totally bored, to me. Yes, she listed shoes twice - did she get two pairs of shoes?  ;-)

"The Road Back" was a 1937 drama starring, among others, Slim Summerville, Andy Devine, and Noah Beery, Jr. Wikipedia says: "The novel on which the film is based was banned during Nazi rule. When the film was made, Universal Pictures was threatened with a boycott of all their films by the German government unless the anti-Nazi sentiments in the script were watered down."

IMDb says: "After World War I, a group of former German soldiers try to adjust to civilian life."

Noah Beery, Jr. (1913-1994)
