"A short story appeared in Cosmopolitan Magazine about a newspaper reporter and a madcap heiress spending the night near Cheraw in a motel room at Cabin Creek. They separated the room with a blanket. Much later the movie "It Happened One Night" (with Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable) was made. It was taken from that magazine story."
