“Two pictures that search into the truth behind today’s moral menace!”
March 23, 1944
MAUREEN O’SULLIVAN’S $2,500 PIN WASN’T intentionally stolen after all. It was all an accident — but it should be a lesson to fans who make a habit of grabbing flowers and handkerchiefs from movie stars. This morning Father Moran of St. Benedict’s church called Maureen to explain what had happened. One of his parishioners, who is a movie fan, had been standing in line when Maureen came out of a broadcasting station. She was wearing a corsage and the little fan reached out and grabbed it for a “souvenir” and then ran. She didn’t realize until she was several blocks away that the valuable pin was dangling on the corsage. She took it immediately to her priest, who returned it to Maureen.
