30's Film ads

I recently acquired a load of flyers from various movie theaters from the 1930's. They have all these great advertisements for upcoming films and I figured why not share 'em with my readers in between my articles about El Brendel and Sexy time Saturday's. Enjoy!

Those are all fantastic. Thanks for sharing them here.

Those are great, and they work too! I really want to see The Cat Creeps now. I saw part of The Star Witness with Dickie Moore and it is really worth seeing; I like Chic Sale a lot.

Fab. These are great.

Do you mind if I reproduce the Animal Crackers one over at the Marx Brothers Council of Britain? We have a running thing going with odd ads. This one's a beaut.

By the way - I need to see The Cat Creeps too: I'm doing some research for a book and I can't track the damned thing down. Anyone got a copy???

Louie said...

Sure, you can copy it, just give credit and a link, if that's cool.

Matthew Coniam said...

Done!
Thanks a bushel!

Samantha and Matthew:
I also sure would like to see "The Cat Creeps" but it is officially declared a Lost Film...totally gone, unfortunately. But the soundtrack discs do exist and I have a copy, plus a few stills, so that's got to be good enough for now...at least I can hear it.

Great stuff! I often wondered what the point of Zeppo was. Now it's obvious. The Zestful Zaney! That must be he most unflattering drawing of Jean Harlow too. Makes her look like a character in a children's comic. Must say I really am enjoying your blog. Nice to be educated as well as entertained.
