July 21, 1941: WARNERS' "MALTESE FALCON" SET AT A GLANCE: Mary Astor "blowing" her lines when the assistant director informs her that hubby Manuel del Campo (now with the RCAF) is long distancing ... Gladys George: "Now I know what became of my favorite publicity man--I recognized his style today in a German war communique" ... Five-foot Peter Lorre demonstrating ju-jitsu holds on six foot-two inch Barton MacLane ... Tough-guy Humphrey Bogart and writer Louis Bromfield heatedly arguing -- about the proper methods of petunia culture! ... Lee Patrick, staggering to a seat after lugging a 50-pound statue of the falcon through a long scene: "If a role like this makes me an 'artist' -- so's a hod carrier!" ... Director John Huston (son of Walter) ruefully accepting first aid after sitting on a fish hook accidentally misplaced by comedian Elisha Cook Jr. who makes trout flies as a hobby," Jimmie Fidler says. 

July 21, 1941, Jimmie Fidler
