April 16, 1940:    Jimmie Fidler says, If Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman are still blushing, here's why: The other eve, they emerged from a preview theater to find the usual swarm of sidewalk gapers choking the lobby.

"Autograph hunters!" gasped Ronnie. "Hang on!"

Placing Jane in his wake, he bent low and charged the mob like a blocking back executing an off-tackle smash. Calmly the crowd opened up and let them through. Not a single autograph book was offered and not a fan gave the slightest sign of recognition.
