Set against the backdrop of Hollywood in its heyday, Uncommon Knowledge depicts a world where home movies were filmed by studio cameramen, home was a thirty-eight-room house on a five-hundred-acre estate in the heart of Beverly Hills, friends were the children of Bing Crosby or Joan Bennett, and getting off a train could be delayed by a mob of fans clamoring to get your mother's autograph. But it is also the story of a lonely little girl who felt she didn't belong anywhere, and who comforted herself by sitting in a dressing room full of her mother's clothes. Hungry for her mother's attention, Judy felt even more excluded after Young's marriage to advertising executive Tom Lewis - a martinet who once said to her two half-brothers, "Judy's adopted. She's not part of our family.".
