In 1929 silent-film actress Joan Lowell published an autobiography, Cradle of the Deep, detailing a childhood spent adventuring around the South Seas as a sea captain's daughter. It was almost immediately proved to be bunkum (by, among other things, statements from her former neighbors, who remembered her actual childhood in Berkeley, California). Humorist Corey Ford published this spoof within months, "Salt Water Taffy." Tucked into this copy of Taffy are a few publicity photos from the publisher. Note that the stock model in the photo bears a striking resemblance to Lowell. Even though "Cradle of the Deep" was proven to be a work of fiction, RKO Pictures made a "documentary" based on the work, 1934's "Adventure Girl." Lowell starred in it. It was her last picture before she left the industry to get married.to a sea-captain, with whom she had a few real-life seafaring adventures. Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction, or fiction strives to be truth!. Seller Inventory # 026091
