Feb. 12, 1941: Tom Treanor, who was killed covering World War II for The Times, writes about his experiences in Romania. “Poor old beautiful, callous, hard-luck Rumania, a happy-go-lucky country trying not to be sad and finding it hard going," Treanor says.

In the Pirate's Den last night, a group of the industry's old-timers reached into the past for dramatic real-life incidents. Here's one concerning three people now dead -- Paul Bern, Barbara La Marr and Jack Daugherty, Jimmie Fidler says.

And cast members apparently attended the opening of “Rebecca” at the Hawaii Theater (which is a little puzzling since the film had already opened at the Four Star Theater in March 1940).
