Original caption:

Los Angeles -- This dramatic photo shows Busby Berkeley, famous Hollywood dance director, lying on his stretcher in a west Los Angeles courtroom while listening to William Alvin Hutson testify about the spectacular three car crash in which both of their cars were involved. Berkeley is charged with 2nd degree murder on two counts growing out of the crash in which two women were killed. Berkeley winced and tossed on his stretcher during the testimony when Hutson testified that he smelled liquor on Berkeley after the accident. (1936)
