Rotten egg and i

The Egg and I was a 1945 novelized memoir by Betty MacDonald telling of her travails as a newlywed wife whose husband buys a chicken farm. It became a bestseller and spawned the 1947 film of the same name (which itself launched the Ma and Pa Kettle movie series) and a short-lived TV serial (1951-1952).
