August 24: Happy Birthday, Jimmie Fidler


Aug 24: Happy Birthday, Jimmie Fidler!  

Fiddler turned 
to tattling on the stars about their tantrums, foibles, affairs, births and divorces.  Jimmy Fidler was thought to be in the shadows of gossip columnists like Hedda Harper and Louella Parsons, but he was generally more feared by the studios because he was more brazen in his reporting. 

Jimmie Fidler is honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to Radio at 6128 Hollywood Blvd.
