Today I am four. Yes, it is the fourth anniversary since the Smiling Eggplant began on July 1 2007.
Every year I spotlight a little human of my age. Last year it was Spanky McFarland of Our Gang/Little Rascals. This year it is four-year-old Richard Nichols from the movie All this and heaven, too, which I saw last night. He is shown in the video with the great Bette Davis. Like Spanky before him, Richard can't hide an incongruous Southern accent which jars with the setting. But both are adorable.
