April 16, 1942: If you send all the Japanese farmers to internment camps, there’s no one to grow strawberries, tomatoes, carrots, green peas and onions. Oops.

Charlotte LeNordtestifies that she killed her foster mother Celeste Frank — who read palms as Madame Lorraine — by mistake, assuming that the gun wasn’t entirely loaded.

Which is to say that she took most, but not all, of the cartridges out of the cylinder before pointing the gun at Frank and pulling the trigger as she said “bang.”

LeNord testified that she thought the cylinder was on an empty chamber, but the old revolver was defective and the cylinder rotated freely. The killing was ruled accidental.

“Joan of Paris” opens at the Carthay Circle.

Victor Mature as Rudolph Valentino? Maybe, says Edwin Schallert. At least Pola Negri visited Mature on the set of “Footlight Serenade,” which may have special significance.
