Date info (from Nick Bolton): Earliest possible date is 1936, probably a year later. Bobby Breen only became known in 1936, and that was with a radio show, and then his first film "Let’s Sing Again." Deanna Durbin's first film was also in 1936 ("Every Sunday"). Frances Farmer also only made her first film in 1936, and Eleanore Whitney had a career that only lasted from 1936-38. In addition, Charles Boyer and Jean Arthur only made one film together, and this was "History is Made at Night," which came out in 1937. Add to that the fact that Fredric March and Janet Gaynor also only made one film together, and that was "A Star is Born," also in 1937. I'm placing a date of 1937 on this set.
