…from Edna May Wonacott’s photo collection

When Films of the Golden Age published my interview with former child actress Edna May Wonacott Green earlier this year, Edna provided a collection of photos, some of which accompanied the magazine piece. Here are those that  haven’t been published on my primary Reel Life blog  – click on images for a larger view:

    Lady Eve, I wanted to stop by and let you know that I picked “Edna May Wonacott’s photo collection”, for “Article of the week” on N and CF. To be posted on Sat. 6th.

  2. The Lady Eve says:

    Thank you, Dawn! I’ll let Edna know.

    Shadow of a doubt just has to be one of my very favorite movies of all time. Little Edna May is just delightful in this picture. I always think how calm, collected and natural she was in saying her lines. She was just so perfect for this role. I have thought about all these actors in this great movie over the years. How nice that someone has shown pictures from Edna’s other film roles here as well. I am anxious to find those movies to see her in them. I am wondering if she will write a book about her life or if one has been written? Blessings to you Edna May, and may God richly bless you and yours.

    Hi Paula – Thought you would be interested to know that Edna will celebrate her 80th birthday on February 6. She isn’t planning to write a book, but she does stage programs every so often in the small city where she lives in which he shares her memorabilia from her movie days and talks about her Hollywood experiences.
