Jan. 27, 1941: Tom Treanor writes about the popularity of the Lockheed Hudson among British fliers. “The Hudson's such a sweetheart to the British airmen that it has been made the heroine of their next-to-the-dirtiest war flying song,” Treanor says.  

Jimmie Fidler says: Here's the kind of determination that's needed to be a successful "movie mamma." The other day, stopping at Columbia, I found the anteroom crowded with moppet applicants for a minor kid role, each one shepherded, of course, by a militant mother.

As I watched, a pretty 6-year-old was dismissed from the producer's sanctum with a few words of consolation.

Craftily, her mamma took her aside, produced a comb and brush, and with a few deft strokes, completely changed the tot's appearance. Minutes later, the same child re-entered the big shot's office for another try and — you've guessed it — came out with the job!
