1944 in Print — Hollywood Gossip by Louella Parsons, April 10, 1944

April 10, 1944, Ted Gale

Here’s another political cartoon by Edmund Waller “Ted” Gale, formerly of The Times, who moved to the Examiner. “There’s a Burma Girl a-Settin’ ” refers to the poem “Mandalay” by Rudyard Kipling.

JUST THE DAY BEFORE JOAN BLONDELL signed her contract to play Aunt Sissy in “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” she took her two children, Norman and Ellen, to the beach and got a terrific sunburn. I talked with her Friday and she was applying every known remedy to her face to try to get it in shape before she starts at 20th. Joan and her suit for divorce against Dick Powell will be filed this week. I understand she will ask for custody of the children, although that is only hearsay. Dick is still living in the house, but there is no chance of a reconciliation.

From the Milwaukee Sentinel.

    Mr. Anthony didn’t make his movie debut until “Divorce American Style” (1967) with Dick Van Dyke & Debbie Reynolds. He played a judge.
