1944 in Print — Hollywood Gossip by Louella Parsons, March 21, 1944


March 21, 1944

HOLLYWOOD, March 20 — I’d like to give a little argument to the reviewer who recently printed that Humphrey Bogart wasn’t at his best in love scenes. For my money, Bogey has most of the hand kissing boys backed off the boards when it comes to romantic sincerity. At various times Ann Sheridan and Bette Davis have told me they felt the same way about Bogey’s brand of love making (in the movies of course). Now I hear that Bette and Msr. Bogart will get a chance to do some of their most hectic love scenes in  a movie they will do, “Lucky Sam McCarver.”

This Sidney Howard play was staged on Broadway about 15 years ago with Claire Ames and John Cromwell in the leading roles. It’s about a gambler with a 5th Avenue lady who fall in love — and how! Henry Blanke will produce.

From the Milwaukee Sentinel.
