Jan. 7, 1941: Jimmie Fidler has an intriguing item about "poison pen notes" being planted in the pockets of workmen on "North West Mounted Police" and "The Great Dictator," which were found by the men’s wives and in several instances nearly provoked divorces.

"The victims of these 'jokes' are positive they know the identity of the perpetrator. If they are correct, what a shock it would be if the name of the suspected person were made known," Fidler says.

[Yes, Paulette Goddard is in both films -- lrh].
