Having pulled up the article, I kept on reading it. I had been musing that Debbie Reynolds was pretty cute back then. And then I read that she had been just eighteen when the movie was filmed, which was in the pretty frighteningly young category. As in way too young to be musing about the cuteness of. :)
And then I noticed her birth date. Which was in the early 1930s. Which makes her about the same age as my deceased mother.
My brain hurts.
There's a Heinlein novel in there somewhere... :)
