Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cecelia Ager (1902-1981) was an American film critic and star reporter for Variety and the New York Post Magazine. Married for 57 years to songwriter Milton Ager, she was mother to two daughters, Laurel Bentley and journalist Shana Alexander. Ager was known as "the coed" for her wit and the ukulele she carried on social occasions. She married Milton Ager four months after meeting him; Mayor Jimmy Walker of New York, also a songwriter, presided at the wedding in his office. She was the first female reporter for Variety, and was known as one of the best dressed women in America. Ager was the movie critic for the New York newspaper PM and a contributor to the New York Times and several national magazines. Her sense of style became an asset to advance her work as a writer. It has been said that "she used fashion as her entry into examining the constricting roles women were asked to play, in real life and onscreen."show more
