Happy birthday, Charles MacArthur;
Carole Nelson Douglas.

Journalist, playwright, and screenwriter Charles MacArthur—best known for The Front Page (cowritten with Ben Hecht) and his marriage to actress Helen Hayes—was born today in Scranton, PA, in 1895. He won an Oscar for best original story for The Scoundrel (1935). He died in 1956.

And Texas resident Carole Nelson Douglas—author of the Midnight Louie and Irene Adler series, as well as a new paranormal series—turns 65 today.
