Veronica Lake may not get that chance to walk across the Paramount lot to RKO for Niven Busch’s “Duel in the Sun” for the reason that she will have the top role in “Miss Susie Slagle’s” at her home studio. She doesn’t play the aging boardinghouse keeper, Miss Slagle, but she will be seen as a glamorous nurse with whom the hero falls in love.

Betty Field has bowed out as Miss Slagle and today Lillian Gish was tested for the park. She’d be wonderful and it seems more than likely she’ll get it. Joan Caufield of “Kiss and Tell” fame plays another nurse, and Sonny Tufts is her doctor-boyfriend. The book, by Augusta Tucker, has been changed considerably, but the interest at Johns Hopkins Hospital and University is still high.

LEO: Things may appear a little difficult and people you meet unfeeling. That means you have a job on your hands, must treat it with unfaltering will, calmly, patiently.
