Dear Diary,

Golly, am I mad. “My Favorite Blonde” was on the radio tonight on the P. M. Playhouse, and who was playing Bob Hope’s part? Milton Berle of all people! And they used the script practically word for word, and nobody followed the movie script any more closely than Berle. I knew he was famous for swiping gags, but I didn’t know he’s just come right out in the open like that. It just isn’t being done in the better circles (and Berle’s are under his eyes.) Imagine anyone trying to take the place of a guy like Bob Hope—”My Favorite Blonde” starring Milt Berle, My Favorite (?) Goon.
