Tom Treanor, who died covering World War II for The Times, files a report from Portugal on trying to interview the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

July 26, 1940: Jimmie Fidler says “The Marx Brothers and MGM are tiffing, with the studio insisting the freres' next pic be made for $800,000 or LESS!”

I was sure Fidler had already run the item on Joan Crawford and the New York doorman who refused to let her rain-drenched fans into the lobby but I can’t find it. Sound familiar?

Preview tonight: “The Drive by Night!”

 July 26, 1940, Jimmie Fidler
