Feb. 23, 1941: An old hand at writing columns but feeling his way in his new assignment, The Home Front,  Tom Treanor writes: "Of all the times in the history of the world to be writing a column this is unquestionably the most exciting.


“And of all the places in which to be writing it, Southern California is probably the most varied and interesting.”


Jimmie Fidler has the day off, so instead I’m running Philip K. Scheuer’s “Town Called Hollywood,” in which he makes his Oscar predictions (he likes “Rebecca” for best picture) and talks about movie directors’ attitudes toward color.
