Gone with the Wind premieres in Atlanta. Clark Gable, upset over Hattie McDaniel not being invited, threatens to boycott the premiere. Gable attends at McDaniel's urging.


Otto Preminger's portrait of a heroin addict, The Man with the Golden Arm, premieres in New York. The film is notable in that it challenged the Production Code Administration, which forbade any film to deal with drug addiction. Preminger releases the film without PCA approval. United Artists withdraws from the PCA as a result. The Production Code was soon modified to allow for movies dealing with drug addiction, as well as sexual liberty.
