fountain of youth
it was only recently that i discovered tyrone power. i know, the man was a human gateau. in 1939 he did a cute film with linda darnell called 'day-time wife.' she is what my dad would call 'a living doll.' they were just darling together in this romp about a young couple starting out in a big city. while he is at work she secretly takes a job as a secretary to a man who (naturally) ends up a business associate of tyrone's. madcap mirth ensues. i had no idea till just now that linda was 16 years old in that movie. 16! she tragically died at 42 in a fire at home.
