Small world

Small world: on Jan.5, I chose, for my column, “From the Army Archerd Archives” excerpts from the Dec. 27, 1971, column in which I related a story of Christmas that year with principals Dyan Cannon, Cary Grant and their daughter Jennifer whom Cary had taken to Disneyland.

On the day that “Archive” column appeared, Selma and I ran into the beautiful Jennifer Grant at the AMC Theater at the Westfield Shopping Center in West L.A. where she’d just seen “The Family Stone.” Her mom, Dyan, was in Miami receiving the Miami Children Hospital Foundation Award and induction into the Ambassador David M. Walters’ International Pediatric Hall of Fame for her work with children’s causes. Canon then returned to L.A. to attend the Palm Springs Film Fest with her film, “The Boynton Beach Club.” Jennifer’s readying a book on Hollywood marriages.
