Walter Winchell says: Many of the staffers at Time-Life are said to be “tired of anonymity” and are taking sides… The big musical hit in town, “Song of Norway,” advertises Milton Lazarus as adapting the book … When it was readying on the coast, he had his name omitted from the ads! … A film producer will be charged with “swindling the government” out of almost a million dollars via tax loopholes.

Louella Parsons says: “Since You Went Away” is dragging them in at the box office in droves and there’s no doubt but the lineup of stars — Claudette Colbert, Jennifer Jones, Shirley Temple, Robert Walker, Joe Cotten — is big bait. Now David Selznick has a similar bee in his bonnet about casting “So Little Time,” the J.P. Marquand hit which gets rolling in December with Joseph Cotten as the hero, Jeffrey Wilson. The book has a half-dozen characters almost as important.

Danton Walker says: So great is Hollywood’s fear, now, of emphasizing the war angle of war pictures that not a single shot is fired in “Abroad With Two Yanks.” It is advertised as “strictly a comedy” … Hollywood hears that if the district attorney doesn’t get a conviction in the Dorsey-Hall case, he’s out, as it will be his third fizzle. The other two busts were the Errol Flynn and Chaplin fiascoes.

LIBRA: A real manifest of your fortitude will overcome day’s less friendly rays. Any soundly forceful effort will certainly repay in long run. Romance sponsored.
