Advertised seventy-five years ago today, on October 28th, 1938…Featured stage dancer Ann Miller tapped herself all the way to Hollywood stardom, and eventually returned to the Broadway stage decades later in “Sugar Babies.”

Tinseltoes commented about Grand Opening Ad (October 5th, 1939) on Oct 27, 2013 at 4:44 pm

It should be noted that at the time, the Senator was considered just another neighborhood cinema with sub-run movies. This ad was published among the “Help Wanted” classifieds, above one for a clothing salesman.

Tinseltoes commented about New York Premiere Engagement (1942) on Oct 27, 2013 at 2:10 pm

Opened on October 22nd, 1942, with customary support from a spectacular stage show. This ad tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. It does not distort history by deleting reference to the stage show.

Tinseltoes commented about World Premiere Engagement (1946) on Oct 27, 2013 at 12:34 pm

Opened on June 20th, 1946…A subsequent ad published by another member created the false impression that the booking had no stage show. But Russell Markert’s superb “Bandbox Revue” supported the film throughout the engagement.

Tinseltoes commented about Stadium Theatre on Oct 25, 2013 at 1:35 pm

They say that the camera never lies, but it can be deceiving. The camera angle may have exaggerated the distance from rear to front. One wonders about the location of the projection booth, and how the rays got around the elaborate chandelier hanging from the center of the ceiling. Did the Stadium perhaps have rear projection from behind the screen, which might explain the narrow width of the stage area?

Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, the white actors who portrayed “Amos ‘N’ Andy,” wore blackface not only in the movie but also during the national radio broadcasts that launched the team into huge popularity.
