This Day in History: 1938-07-04

Hollywood Reporter notes that this week “Squabbles from Jeanette and Nelson cost Woody Van Dyke 5 days of production” on “Sweethearts.” We don’t know which event caused the production shutdown, possibly it was when Gene Raymond hit Jeanette and badly bruised her face (according to Ruth Van Dyke Jeanette had a terrible black eye); Nelson retaliated by hitting Gene and sending him to the hospital.
