* For those not familiar with the scandal, GG (!) was sued by Little
Miss L (!!) when he wrote a review of "Captain January" which he found
to be "a little depraved," and of whose star he further wrote "some of

Colbert's, and an oddly precocious body as voluptuous in grey flannel
trousers as Miss Dietrich's."
