Little Miss Cornshucks was my adopted auntie in Chicago.
17 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, I'd like to see this movie as well, as Little Miss Cornshucks was my adopted auntie in Chicago. My earliest memories were of her living with us in Chicago's Hyde Park, in an apartment, when I was about four or five years old. The last time I saw her I was about nine years old. I have fond memories of those times, although now they seem a little foggy, and the memory of her face has faded away, but somehow I still faintly remember her hair being braided in two pigtails on either side of her head, and a broad happy smile, somehow didn't reveal her inner pain and from what I was told later from family members, of her struggle with substance abuse. I miss her dearly and just discovered that she passed away in 1999. If anyone knows where I can get this movie please let me know. My name is Desi Singh.
