Feb. 16, 1941: Tom Treanor files a report from Palm Springs, saying that the desert outpost seems impossibly remote from the war in Europe. “Nigel Bruce, the English actor, has been showing some British fliers around the past few days and their bewilderment must be past description,” Treanor says.
Jimmie Fidler has the day off. Instead, Philip K. Scheuer reports on the filming of “Tobacco Road” in Town Called Hollywood. Notice the reference to the camera having the new coated lenses, which is what allowed Gregg Toland to get some of the shots in “Citizen Kane.”
