Mary Margaret McBride

PostFri Jan 23, 2015 10:48 am

I mentioned this program a while back. Here is a youtube (transferred from 16mm print) of a pilot film that Mary Margaret McBride shot in her Catskills home in West Shokan, NY. Her guest for the entire half-hour is the legendary Eddie Dowling. The television interview series never materialized but McBride continued to do radio from her home until her death in 1976.

It's digestible!

I was just thinking of MMM yesterday!
Thanks so much.... what a fascinating and valuable film from so many standpoints.
It's the first time I'd seen radio fixture McBride- or stage and film star/producer/writer Dowling- on film.
Eddie's amusement park idea sounded quite a bit like Disneyland.

Too bad the cameras didn't pan to show Dowling's wife, Ray Dooley (click here for bio and photos)-
a veteran of 13 Broadway shows, 4 with her pal, W C Fields. She has only 2 imdb credits, 7 fewer than her husband.

We have a Mary Margaret McBride Cookbook, the thing is huge! My father collected it in installments from the local grocery store back in the 60's.
