    . . . . Frank McCarthy's script of "Singlehanded" is en route to Darryl Zanuck for approval. Picture will be filmed in England with shots of the British fleet during maneuvers in the Mediterranean. McCarthy's screen play on "Assignment in Stockholm" is almost finished. For that one, he wants Swedish Actress Anita Bjork, whose first pciture, "Miss Julie," got raves in New York. One critic says she's the best European actress since Garbo.

    . . . . The Darryl Zanuck's got back here in time for their son's graduation from the Harvard school. During the whole ceremony he craddled his granddaughter on his knee. I asked Darryl if he'd secured any new talent during his European trip, "No," he said, "but I will sign the Swedish actress,Anita Bjork, who's now being sponsored by the Roayl theater. She won't be free until 1953, but she's worth waiting for. She reminds me of a young Garbo." . . . .

    Nunnally Johnson has three firsts to his credit. He has made the first great anti-commie film; the first technically great picture in CinemaScope, and has directed the first great acting job of Gregory Peck. The picture is "Night People," so convincingly and honestly told it'll give you chills up and down your spine. The film was made entirely in Berlin, Germany. It has everything--excitement, horror, suspense. It shows the army brass, the state department, and the way we operate in Germany. The picture is virtually a one-man job, as Nunnally produced, directed and helped write it. Broderick Crawford and Buddy Ebsen also are great in it. . . .

    Gregory Peck Signs Contract for More Than a Cool Million

    by Hedda Hopper's Staff

    Hollywood, Nov. 23---According to Darryl Zanuck, a man who has scrawled his name on some expensive documents, he has just signed "the fattest contract ever made with an actor." The pact, which runs for five years, calls for Gregory Peck to act in five major productions during that time for Twentieth Century-Fox at a fee running nicely beyond a million dollars. Greg's first film in the deal will begin shooting in August and will be the first murder mystery to be made in CinemaScope. It is to be called "The Black Widow," a brrrrrr title if we ever heard one. This assignment also gives credence to our contention of a few months ago that there never really was any trouble between Greg and Nunnally Johnson on "Night People" in Germany, because Nunnally will write and produce this film, too. Peck has a couple of overseas assignments to complete before next summer but has assured Zanuck he can make the starting date nicely.
