Rose Queen–A Cautionary Tale


Hollywood occasionally intersects with the innocent ritual that is the Rose Court. The fairest flowers of Pasadena’s young womanhood compete for a chance to wave from a float. This year, Mary McCluggage, daughter of Kerry McCluggage, one-time head of Paramount TV turned indie producer, is on the court.
