Man About Town

Norma Shearer is expected to resume her screen career in the role of Katy (the mother) in “Tree Grows in Brooklyn” … Franz Werfel, author of “Song of Bernadette” (after two heart attacks), is able to leave his bed for two hours daily … Maureen O’Hara and her groom expect another image in June.

Ironical Twist: Myrna Kennedy, onetime flame of Charles Chaplin (she appeared in “The Gold Rush” with him), is an employee in the Los Angeles offices of the FBI.*  The reason Albert Leonard George’s haberdashery in Rockefeller Center hasn’t any cashmere vests is that Garbo bought them.

*Winchell has it wrong, alas. She was in “The Circus.”

From the St. Petersburg Times.
