The first program change of the new decade followed a hold-over of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” which had opened on December 30th, 1939.

Interesting there is absolutely no mention of this being a remake of The Front Page which was one of the most successful plays of the recent past and audiences would have been very familiar with it.
