Although the Technicolor musical seemed an ideal booking for Loew’s Coney Island, it opened at the rival RKO Tilyou when it reached the beach community. “They Came To Blow Up America” was the supporting feature.

It would have made more historical sense to book a movie that actually played at Loew’s 175th Street. “Casablanca” debuted in Washington Heights at the rival RKO Coliseum.

Newspaper caricature by Al Hirschfeld published on their opening day at the Paramount (12/04/32). George Jessel was the star of the original Broadway stage production of “The Jazz Singer.” Fannie Brice was the inspiration for “Funny Girl” and the movie sequel “Funny Lady.”

Advertised on November 28, 1927…And for better or worse, Fox still remains a major name in news reporting throughout the world.

Tinseltoes commented about "We Make Our Own Weather" (1949) on Nov 11, 2013 at 10:07 am

In the summer of 1949, the Madison claimed to have “the only refrigeration plant in Ridgewood.” It was also luring people from home TV by presenting vaudeville on Tuesday nights and free consultations with mind-reader Zelaine on Thursdays.

RCMH’s first CinemaScope feature was also MGM’s first in that process, “Knights of the Round Table,” which opened on January 7th, 1954. The screen measured 70' wide by 28' high, which was considerably wider than the one used for “Shane” but two feet shorter.

Tinseltoes commented about For One Week Only (1957) on Nov 11, 2013 at 8:01 am

Opened September 16th, 1957, with one performance nightly and an added Saturday matinee (no movies on the bill)…This was six years after Garland’s historic “come-back” at the NYC Palace in 1951. She had also returned there in 1956.
