    1. In the interest of full disclosure, Scott O'Brien is a friend and I'm mentioned in the acknowledgements of this book. Before reading Ruth Chatterton: Actress, Aviator, Author, I was under the impression that Miss Chatterton was a pre-code maven who just sort of disappeared in the years after 1934.
