Marguerite Harrison Flashback

Marguerite Harrison's Passport, 1922

Marguerite Harrison’s Passport, 1922

In 2008 I published The Sexism Behind King Kong Lies In The Grass. This is where we learn there are bigger, hairier, more knuckle-dragging annoyances than apes. And, boy, did Marguerite Harrison (reporter, spy, film maker & financier, translator, author, and one of the four founding members of the Society of Woman Geographers) have to deal with them.

Of all the books she authored, There’s Always Tomorrow: The story of a Checkered Life (sometimes called Born For Trouble: The Story of a Chequered Life) is the one I covet most.

    Never knew about Marguerite Harrison, so I tracked back to your earlier post and read about her, very interesting! Adds yet another layer of interpretation to that bizarre and fascinating movie.
