First up, Croton's Fay Bainter and Mickey Rooney, 1943/1944, reunited as mother and son in THE HUMAN COMEDY. The film is the story of a teenaged Homer Macauley (Mickey Rooney) in high school, working part-time as a telegram delivery boy, in the fictional town of Ithaca, California, during World War II.
The effects of the war on the "Home Front" over a year in Homer's life are depicted in sentimental scenarios involving himself, his family, friends, and neighbors, and acquaintances encountered.
Also appearing in the film are James Craig, Marsha Hunt, Van Johnson, Donna Reed and Jackie 'Butch' Jenkins among others.

And finally, Croton's own Gloria Swanson in the 1925 film, MADAME SANS-GEN....A 1925 American silent romantic costume comedy-drama film directed by Léonce Perret and starring Gloria Swanson. Based on the play of the same name by Victorien Sardou and Émile Moreau, the film is now considered lost.
The film was produced and filmed in France, as Swanson was on extended vacation there. She soon became involved with Henri de la Falaise, hired by Paramount to be her translator, and who later became her third husband.
