A Kinder, Simpler Time Dept.: Your Movie Columnist

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.

'Nightmare Alley' is Tyrone Power's most interesting picture. He played against type and turned in an amazing performance.

Very much an under appreciated film.
