A Tale of Two Mollys: An American Girl on the Home Front
When Molly McIntire is told that everyone must do their part during a war, she takes that command seriously. While rocking a middle part and dancing in her town's tap dance revue, Molly ascends to the big screen in "Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front" (2006). Though many esteemed filmmakers have tried to capture war on film, few have been so bold as to include a soda jerk uttering the line: “Sorry girls there’s no ice cream today." Tune in to hear us talk about the iconic teen queen Molly Ringwald, who plays Molly's mother, and the fantastic cast of child actors. Once again, this American Girl film proves that there's no small parts (there is, however, little brother erasure). Visit our merch store!
