Libeled Lucy

This question and answer piece appeared in the Dec. 11 TV section of The Indianapolis Star:

Q: I saw a movie in color with Lucille Ball, Esther Williams and Van Johnson in which Williams is suing the newspaper where Johnson works. I'm sure this is a remake of an old black-and-white movie. What is the title of the original?

A: The movie you saw is the 1946 film "Easy to Wed," which is a remake of the 1936 film "Libeled Lady."
