In 1942, as World War II was raging, the Gestapo sent out an urgent message: “She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her.” That spy was Virginia Hall, a young American woman who—rejected from the Foreign Service because of her gender and prosthetic leg—talked her way behind enemy lines in occupied France and went on to become one of the greatest (and most unlikely) spies in U.S. history. Her little know story is now being told in A Woman of No Importance – The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II. Author Sonia Purnell discusses the research into Virginia Hill, a woman with dozens of aliases, her missions and legacy.
The history of the classic movie Creature from the Black Lagoon is probably not something you’ve spent much time thinking about, unless you’re a film-buff or diehard horror fan.

My guest today is Mallory O’Meara, author of “The Lady from the Black Lagoon, Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick”. In 1954 Millicent was working at Universal Studios in the special effects shop when she created the Creature, she was making history as the first woman to design a monster for a feature film and then, poof, she was gone. Mallory, a filmmaker, had to find out what happened! malloryomeara.com
