Clarke looked back on the chaotic production of “Terminator Genisys” in an interview with Vanity Fair and admitted that “no one had a good time” making the sequel.

On March 20, 1939, Wakefield gave Nestlé the right to use her cookie recipe and the Toll House name.

In her recently published “Great American Chocolate Chip Cookie Book,” the food writer Carolyn Wyman offers a more believable, if somewhat less enchanted, telling.
