This is a profile of Hollywood star Veronica Lake (4' 11": 1922 – 1973) that appeared on the newsstands during the Christmas of 1944:
"One of the most acute problems in Hollywood is Veronica Lake. Where, and at what precise moment her time-bomb mind will will explode with some deviation from what studio bosses consider normal is an ever-present question. Hence, the grapevine of the movie industry always hums with rumors that unless Miss Lake 'behaves', she will no longer be tolerated, but cast into oblivion."
"Women are always trouble to unimaginative men..."
(No truer words have 'ere been spoken - but to be fair, it should be remembered that the actress suffered from schizophrenia...)
