Nicky recently purchased a January 1950 issue of LOOK magazine in which her grandparents, father, and two of her uncles appeared in an ad touting a keen new allergy medicine, Anahist. Note: no warnings or announced side effects anywhere in evidence! Talk about a wonder drug.
That's Nicky's dad Arthur next to her grandmother, the actress and acting teacher Lillian Green Caran. The other two boys are Nicky's uncles Ronnie and Rick. At this time, Nicky's grandfather Byron Caran was working as a studio musician in NYC. I wonder how the Caran family got tabbed (along with several other families) for this gig. Probably those nebulous, yet never-to-be-underestimated, "industry connections" were involved here.
