She’s 85 years young today – and has been my inspiration since reading “A Little Princess” and watching her 1939 version of that classic story on Channel 5 on a Saturday in the ’70s. When I need cheering up, she’s my number one go-to gal! And that day in the fall of 1988, when I met her? Still one of the highlights of my life. There’ll never be another Curly Top!
