March 25, 1941: Tom Treanor has another column on Jan Valtin’s “Out of the Night,” which I have begun reading, thanks to the Los Angeles Public Library, and I must say that so far the book is much better than I expected. In fact it’s remarkably good. As Richard Krebs (Valtin was a pen name), the author was quite a figure in San Quentin, where he worked on the prison newspaper after being convicted of a 1926 assault. He was paroled in 1929 and pardoned in 1941.  

It took Robert Rossen three times as long (six months) to script "The Sea Wolf" as it took Jack London to write the novel, Jimmie Fidler says.
