 Feb. 14, 1952, Hedda Hopper 

Feb. 14, 1952: Hedda Hopper says, "Jean Arthur has collected nearly $500,000 from Paramount since 1947, yet has made only two pictures for that company. Now by mutual consent her contract has been canceled, with a large hunk of cash going to Miss Arthur. Company officials must not have seen her performance in 'Shane,' directed by George Stevens. Alan Ladd says Jean's performance is so great she'll have a whole new, brilliant career.”
