Eggman, my note above of May 11, 2013 re: Basil Displays..They did a lot of displays for Movie Theater’s and probably other’s like Retail Store Displays. I’m pretty sure Basil’s team did the Marily Monroe for the Criterion…He also did false front displays for “Cimarron” & “Longest Day” that played at the Midwest Theater..I believe he may have been the only one in OKC that produced those types of theater displays..They also did work for many other theaters in the okc area showing major runs….Hope this helps!

Nice work on finding a 1949 under new management ad for the Oklahoma City Wes-Ten Theater. Should you discover the initial Grand Opening Ad in the 1945 time frame please post if possible. Thanks

I recall seeing Quicksand several moons ago and Mickey, for me, gave a excellent performance in a out of character role..He was multi talented as a actor but, best, for me, in a comedy. Would be really great if he and Judy were hitting it again somewhere up yonder ways.
