Wanted! For Murder
by Victor Keppler,
A woman--someone who could
resemble the viewer`s neighbor, sister,
wife, or daughter--was shown on a "wanted"
poster as an unwitting murderess.
At least one viewer voiced
objection to the choice of a
female model. A letter from a resident of Hawaii
Office of War Information reads, in part, "American
women who are knitting, rolling bandages, working
hours at war jobs and then carrying on with
work` at home--in short, taking over the countless
duties to which no salary and no glory are attached,
resent these unwarranted and presumptuous accusations
which have no basis in fact, but from the time-worn
of newspaper funny men."
