Bill Robinson: “The Dark Cloud of Joy!”
March 24, 1944
SNAPSHOTS OF HOLLYWOOD COLLECTED AT RANDOM: Staff Sgt. Jack Foisle, the 24-year-old writer who revealed the yarn about Americans shooting down their own planes, was guest at a newspaper dinner. He is very shy and blushes easily; an amusing sight — two little fans watching Herbert Marshall dozing at the wheel of his car while Lee (Mrs. M.) was inside a market shopping. The youngsters were as quiet as mice waiting for Bart to awaken and sign their autographs; Jennie Lee is the name of the wealthy Texas beauty who has been doing the night spots with Red Skelton; Wallie Beery has been smiling at Jackie Glass, a comely showgirl; Benny Baker has joined Skeets Gallager in the road company of “Good Night Ladies.” He is taking Stu Erwin’s role. The Erwins return to Hollywood.
