"99 River Street" plus more

The ad above I scanned in from my yellowed copy of the December 20, 1953 edition of the Atlanta Constitution. I dig that tagline: "Rips into you like a double-crossing dame!" Yes, that can be painful.

The photos and movie info came from the same paper. Note that "The Stranger Wore A Gun" was a 3-D movie. Back then the gimmick was used to try to draw people back into the theater as TV stole them away. Now we're seeing a resurgence of 3-D being used for much the same reason.

I'll post more from this December paper soon, as we look back on the holiday season of fifty-five years ago! Were you even alive then? I was five years away from gracing my parents with my presence.
