BERNICE BOBS HER HAIR: When boring Bernice visits her extended family, her glamorous cousin Marjorie desides to make her over, if only to keep her from being a drag on her social life. The transformation is successful and Bernice becomes popular with all the local boys, including Marjorie's beau, Warren. And Marjorie isn't going to stand for that.
"Bernice Bob Her Hair," holds an important place in Fitzgerald work as an early examination of theme of competition for social success: especially among young women.
Blythe Danner, a Tony(R) winner, has starred in numerous Broadway productions, and in such films as Meet the Parents, The Great Santini, and The Prince of Tides; she played Zelda Fitzgerald in the telefilm, F. Scott Fitzgerald and "The Last of the Belles."

SCOTT FITZGERALD (1896-1940) completed four novels--This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, Tender is the Night and The Great Gatsby--and wrote numerous short stories, including "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." He is widely considered one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.
