Nov. 10, 1947, Hedda Hopper  

Nov. 10, 1947: Hal Wallis’ script “Be Still, My Love,” is “too stupid to shoot.”  "Be Still, My Love," from a novel by June Truesdell, was to be about a Southern California college teacher who kills one of her students for making a pass at her. It was intended for Barbara Stanwyck, who was cast in "Sorry, Wrong Number" instead. The film was eventually made as “The Accused” with Loretta Young.
