Jimmie Fidler in Hollywood, April 9, 1941

April 9, 1941: Whom do you think of as the Lone Ranger? Clayton Moore? Brace Beemer? Meet Earl Graser, who played the Lone Ranger on the radio until he was killed in a car accident at the age of 32.

Lee Shippey has a letter about conditions in occupied France and Tom Treanor has a roundup of items.

Jimmie Fidler says: If ever I saw a new career launched in bad taste and with minimum good judgment, 19-year-old Marjorie Woodworth, Hal Roach "find," is getting such a sendoff. In Life magazine appears a photographic layout of the girl -- a layout based on her resemblance to the late Jean Harlow.

Grew up with Brace Beemer (with Fred Foy announcing) and thinking that Detroit must be one of the world's great cities. Then television came along, and the Loan Arranger's voice changed. Detroit receded and Hollywood came to the forefront. Fred Foy went on the introduce Dick Cavett. And the world continues to change.
