1944 in Print — Hollywood Gossip by Louella Parsons, April 29, 1944


April 29, 1944

We have a deeply embedded notion that the “Greatest Generation” dutifully paid their taxes because it was the patriotic thing to do. This editorial cartoon, by Edmund Waller “Ted” Gale of the Los Angeles Examiner, illustrates the reality.


Louella Parsons says: Steve Crane denied today he is bringing sensational charges in his divorce suit against Lana Turner for the custody of their baby. “I wouldn’t do such a thing to my daughter, nor to Lana. My only allegation is mental cruelty, the same charge my wife made against me. I am bringing the counter suit because I want to be sure of seeing Cherryl Christine at least half the time,” he said.
