Fans of Old Time Radio, the Greatest Generation, #vintage stars, and the #goldenage, please visit our #Kickststarter page and be part of telling Mary Small’s incredible story for the first time!
One of the great treasures I came across in researching entertainers who aided in the war effort for my film, The Little Girl with the Big Voice, was a recording Mary did with Jimmy Stewart. This clip comes from a bond rally show where Mary played an infatuated fan of Jimmy’s who didn’t realize he was standing right next to her. Mary spent not only the war years supporting the effort but continued her support afterwards so that our veterans could be funded as well as the country. They were both symbols of The Greatest Generation.
