Showmen's Trade Review April   30, 1955 (Daddy Long Legs)
1 Showmen's Trade Review April 30, 1955 (Daddy Long Legs)
New York Charles E. "Chick" Lewis 1955 Vol. 62, No. 19 soft cover Very good 
Very nice, clean trade magazine targeted at movie theater owners. All the ads and short articles are full of info on the state of the movie experience halfway through the 1950s. The big movie of this issue was definitely Daddy Long Legs, which starred Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron based the novel by Jean Webster who wrote it in 1912. The magazine measures 9" by slightly over 12". The ads of course are for adding comfort and modernity to the movie theater. Coca Cola ad on the back cover encourages its sale in the lobby. 
Price: 25.00 USD

New York Stage Publishing company Inc. 1937 Vol. 14, No. 5 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice, tightly bound magazine with no label. Small bit of discoloring at spine and lower edge which is not too visible. Overall clean and bright. Among the Valentine faces on the cover are Gary Cooper, Noel Coward, Donald Duck, Fred Astaire, Greta Garbo, Charlie Chaplin and many more. There's also a very nice ad for Seagram's inside (see photo). And also a nice photo of Katherine Hepburn as Jane Eyre which accompanies an article about theatre as an escape mechanism. Other topics include theatre restaurants (dinner theatres); liquor laws and how restaurants obey, or sort of obey them; Clark Gable and Myrna Loy in the Irish history movie Parnell; and the music of Wagner. Magazine is quite large at 10" x 13-1/2", but will ship in the U.S. for $2. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but please inquire with destination for an exact shipping quote.
