WEFOUNDLucky Us


“Lucky Us” is a bustling tale of American reinvention. Like Hugo, Bloom fills her narrative with surprising twists and turns, betrayals, passions and no little scandal. But unlike Hugo’s, Bloom’s work is blessedly short and suffused with a modern sensibility. Although the setting is World War II and the action takes us from Ohio to Hollywood to Brooklyn, not to mention American internment camps and the bombing of Dresden and Pforzheim, there is nothing old about this story. It moves like today’s news.

As Nazi Germany consolidates its hold on Europe and marches east, Iris takes her charm offensive to the American Babylon. Three months later, she has landed a starlet’s contract with MGM. Six months later — even as little Eva cooks, washes and pays regular visits to the library — Iris racks up five movies and three speaking roles. But that lucky streak will not last. Less than a year later, at 19, Iris is banished from Hollywood forever, smeared as a hopeless pervert. It seems Hedda Hopper, Hollywood’s vicious queen of gossip, has laid hands on three snapshots of Iris with another starlet, kissing and cavorting naked on a deserted beach.

Yes, danger and the ridiculous seem to walk hand in hand in this chorale of mishaps. While war is raging in Europe and frenzy is biting the air, Edgar and his daughters are desperately on the skids in L.A., wondering in what shoe the next nest egg will be buried. Happily, a sympathetic friend comes to the rescue. Francisco, an MGM makeup artist — “a big fat pile of pity for every stray dog” — is marginal himself: Hispanic, gay, with two sisters who happen to own a beauty parlor in Brooklyn. As Francisco tells it, his sisters have a bright idea for Edgar and Iris: Come to Brooklyn, reimagine yourself. We have the jobs for you.

Ron and Teri were gracious enough to allow us to park adjacent to their lovely home for 4 days. Here is our primo spot in Twin Palms complete with all the lemons and grapefruit you can eat!

Uncle Ronnie, the ultimate ham, donned his finest for our first night on the town. There were lots of costumes and frivolity on the street. We wandered for a couple of hours down the Main Street of Palm Springs enjoying the street vendors and warm climate. It was wonderful!

After arriving in Palm Springs Thursday afternoon, we enjoyed an awesome Mexican dinner with spectacular company….our old neighbors, Ron and Teri Bernstein.
