Tatum O'Neal

Happy Birthday to

Tatum O'Neal

48 today

It's when kids that marked cinematic milestones have birthdays that we begin to realise how time is passing, and so it is with anyone who remembers film in the early 70's when Ryan's daughter stole the limelight in Paper Moon. Of course I wasn't even born then and can only remember Tatum from her marriage (and divorce) to John McEnroe, but anyone who can remember is probably now considering whatever happened to the last 38 years.

I don't think I've seen anything with her in it. no, not even Paper Moon.

Well, (he he) I do remember. Tatum was definitely the "flavor of the moment", and there was huge affection for her Oscar win then...Now, it doesn't seem like the best choice, even though the movie was sort of fun.. She never had another great role, which probably says more about her limited range than her opportunity.

OK, OK, I confess.

I haven't seen anything she's done either.

I feel so bad. But I still hope she had a great birthday.

Tom, you may be right but it also speaks about child actors generally and how they struggle to make the transition.
