    The real Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimborough outlived Gail Russell and Diana Lynn.

      “Our Hearts Were Growing Up” (1946) is the correct title, and has none of the charm of the original.

    I read the book Our hearts were young & gay in high school. We read that the girls went out wearing their fur coats & were caught in the rain drenching their rabbit coats which to us was hilarious. In the book I’ve bought which doesn’t give the publishing date doesn’t have that incident. I was quite disappointed. Did this happen in another version of the book?
