    More Details Hide Details They had one child, Johanna Harvey Johnson (born February 6, 1944 in Los Angeles). With his success in the Earhart role, Harvey was signed to a motion picture contract by 20th Century Fox.
  • 1941
    Age 23
    Swanson, Saunders and Harvey were found guilty on January 23, 1941, while the others were acquitted.
    More Details Hide Details In early June, the convictions were upheld by the Superior Court. Harvey and Saunders were each fined $250. Swanson was fined $500 and sentenced to 180 days in jail. While the trial was in progress, Harvey was cast in the juvenile lead in the Collison and Hopwood farce Getting Gertie's Garter (1941) at the Musart Theatre, 1320 South Figueroa Street, in Los Angeles, opposite Rae Whitney in the title role. Harvey moved to New York and made his debut on Broadway, where he appeared in two plays. Harvey performed in the ensemble cast of the melodrama Johnny 2 X 4 (1942) at the Longacre Theatre, which included Lauren Bacall, who was credited as Betty Bacall. He was then cast in the role as Private Earhart in the F. Hugh Herbert comedy Kiss and Tell (1943) at the Biltmore Theatre, a big success that was produced and directed by George Abbott and included Richard Widmark in the cast.
  • 1940
    Age 22
    Harvey and Saunders were both replacements in the production, which was a big success and played its 365th performance on August 5, 1940, marking its first year run and setting a milestone in local theatrical history by smashing a 16-year record for legitimate stage productions.
    More Details Hide Details It outlasted all other stage attractions and smashed every existing attendance record for a show of its type in Los Angeles. Though extremely popular, White Cargo had a reputation as a "steamy production." There was a scene where Tondeleyo was onstage topless. On the night of December 19, 1940, the LAPD's "purity squad" led a raid on the theatre. They closed the play and arrested the cast and the producer, William D. Swanson (1907–1983), on charges of presenting an indecent show. They believed that the semi-nudity and the sensuous writhing of Tondeleyo was obscene. During the trial, a "command" performance of White Cargo was given at the Beaux Arts on Tuesday, January 22, 1941, for the judge and jury. They sat silently as the cast enacted the play and Tondeleyo, as portrayed by Saunders, "worked her sensuous wiles on every white man in the cast."
    The Los Angeles Times of June 4, 1940, stated, "John Harvey is sincere and type perfect as the young hero."
