In Annie Warbucks Commissioner Doyle comes up to the Warbucks Mansion to discuss women for Mr. Warbucks to date, and her assistant Mrs. Kelly arrives with some more files of eligible women. When Mrs. Kelly is getting ready to leave and go back to Commissioner Doyle's office, it is pouring rain, so Mr. Warbucks offers her a dollar for cab fare. The date this happens is Friday, February 9, 1934.
Speaking of historical accuracy on February 9, 1934 it was 15 degrees below zero, the coldest temperature ever reached in New York City. Must have been an awfully cold rain.
