I am so grateful for Mary to have saved all this info. I almost feel guilty for leaning some of these secrets. It is kinda like opening their Diary.

Great book. I enjoyed reading the untold stories about some of my favorite actors. Seeing their test paper scores shows that they were like me. I was surprised to see that Mickey Rooney never graduated from high school and that Judy Garland was very smart.

It was interesting reading the book about their school days, grades and hobbies. I am looking forward to seeing the new additions that will be added on the website.
