The CinemaScope toon above was designed to be displayed in a vertical vs horizontal position to convey in dry humor, it is too wide to fit horizontally, so, that is why it is pictured in this manner…Relating to new wide screen CinemScope…Funny!

Just found this blog and am very late to the party…WSS was and still is one of my all time favorites. I saw the first showing in Oklahoma City in 1962 at the State Theater. I recall that a intermission was included. I still have the original sound track LP album from that time frame and continue to watch reruns from time to time. Great blog. Thanks
