Hey, Lost Memory! Fancy meeting you here in Baltimore!

A more panoramic shot of same “Joan of Arc” photo of the Walbrook is printed in Herbert H. Harwood, Jr.’s book, “Baltimore and its Streetcars” (1984, Quadrant Press, NY). The movie was out in 1948, but here it is in January 1951 re-release.

Two other theaters for which I did not find separate entries have photos in the same book:

1) Keith’s at Lexington & Park. Marquee shows “Red Hot and Blue” with Betty Hutton and Victor Mature in Nov. 1949.

2) Linden on Linden Ave. Sept. 1949. This time it’s “Red River” with the Duke, Montgomery Clift and Walter (“Old Rivers”) Brennan.

I don’t have the technical capability to scan and post, so I’m hoping someone in Baltimore (or anywhere else, for that matter) can track down this softcover book at a local library and add the photos to their respective sites. Thx & good luck!
