Shirley Jones was filming her first 
major motion picture
 OKLAHOMA! when she turned 21. 
Fortunately,  she was allowed to travel home for a 
celebration in her home town of Smithton. Pa. 


 March 31st 1955, 
Shirley surrounded by her Mom and Dad, best friends and relatives. 
And that's her grandmother in the far upper left-hand corner.


Good Friends, Red and Shari

Happy 21st Birthday from Mr. Hornblow, Jr., The Producer of OKLAHOMA!
Also from Mr. Zinnermann who directed the motion picture.
