Walter Winchell says: Joan Fontaine’s intimates suspect that if she weds again the groom will be producer D. Lewis … The postponed Edgar Bergen marriage is just a nice way of saying it is off for good… Deanna Durbin has that expression again because Life’s Robert Landry is back.

Louella Parsons says: Spencer Tracy’s back from Honolulu, where he spent three and a half weeks visiting our men in hospitals. “Entertain?” scoffs Spence. “What can I do? I can’t even whistle!”

Danton Walter says: Part of the campaign to eliminate Nazi influence in the postwar world is an order from Washington to commanding generals to destroy all films made in Germany since 1933.

LIBRA: Stimulating for industrial, mechanical and general business. Gains through sound investments. Don’t forget to lay something away for that rainy day.

    OMG! Not all films made during that time period were Nazi Propaganda. In 1933 alone The Testament of Dr. Mabuse, Viktor und Viktoria, The Burning Secret, The House of Dora Green, and Liebelei were released. All of these films were made by men who had to flee the Nazis. I wonder if this plan was carried out?

    Fortunately some German movies made during the Nazi era, like the movies about the Titanic and Baron Von Munchausen, survived.
