Joan Bennett Week: Everybody hates Jennings Lang

Joan Bennett found herself at the center of a scandal in 1951 after her husband, Walter Wanger, shot agent Jennings Lang. Believing his wife was cheating on him with Lang, Wagner decided to solve the problem by shooting Lang in the balls. Lang took a bullet to the inner thigh, and Wanger spent four months in jail.

According to this clipping from the Jan. 2, 1952 Argus-Record, nobody much liked Jennings Lang. He'd later produce Airport 1975, The Concorde: Airport '79 and Earthquake, giving people fewer reasons to like him.
