Do You Believe Me?

The train rushes by. The images in the passing windows are like fleeting frames of film. Lives frozen for a second in time, then gone.

The role of The Kid should have gone to me, not Jackie Coogan. But I'm a girl and Chaplin wanted a boy. I didn't make it into any of the Our Gang shorts either. The dog didn't like me and nipped my elbows constantly during audition. In 1925, I was hired for a major production starring Lon Chaney, called The Monster. All my scenes ended up being cut, though. The other actors accused me of upstaging and scene hogging.

I Can Help

Let me help you. Though in the interest of full disclosure, I must tell you that my previous attempts to help escapees failed miserably. Two sank in a mud bog, one was accidentally shot by a twelve-year old, and the other was mistakenly garroted with a piece of twine. But my heart is in the right place.
