Officers from Pasadena, Glendale and Los Angeles County join to recover four safes that had been dumped in the San Fernando Reservoir by a gang of thieves. The safecrackers specialized in stealing a small safe, loading it into their car and breaking it open on the drive to the reservoir, where it was dumped down a steepĀ  bank.

Hedda Hopper says: “If it’s true that Greta Garbo is lending an interested ear to David Selznick’s blandishments to do the Sarah Bernhardt role for him, what’s to happen to the story of the Norwegian merchant marine which she agreed to do at the request of the Norwegian ambassador to the United States?

    LADY PRECIOUS STREAM was filmed in 1938 and again in 1950. However, Natalie Schafer, aka Mrs. Thurston Howell III in Gilligan’s Island, did not appear in either film per IMDB.
