The Egg and I
The Egg and I, first published in 1946, is a humorous memoir by American author Betty MacDonald about her adventures and travails as a young wife on a chicken farm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. It was a blockbuster success as a novel, and was adapted into a movie and short-lived TV series, starring Patricia Kirkland, with Nancy Carroll as her mother (Carroll was Kirkland's real mother). The movie, starring Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert, was the source for the 10-film Ma and Pa Kettle franchise starring Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride.
