1944 in Print — Hollywood Gossip by Louella Parsons, March 16, 1944


Diana van Dyne is at Milwaukee’s Empress Burlesk!


March 16, 1944

HOLLYWOOD, March 15 Charles Boyer was on the 20th Century-Fox lot today, so I knew something was cooking, if you’ll pardon my slang. He was there to talk with Ernst Lubitsch about “The Typhoon,” and because he knows the play he said if he could arrange his commitments at Universal he would do it. All actors like to work with Lubitsch because they can be sure of a good picture. Charles would play a Jap as he did in “Hari-Kiri.”

Ernst is very busy these days, with three pictures in the offing. The first of these, “Czarina,” will get going the last of July with the inimitable Tallulah Bankhead as the star. Yep, Tallulah’s coming back. That means good copy for all the newspaper people and a lot of fun for her friends.

From the Milwaukee Sentinel.
