Late 1930s Movie Ads from Exhibitor's Guides

I run the Pre-Code Movies page on Facebook and I have tons of magazine scans and digitally saved photos from that era to keep the page going! I also have lots of scans from 1935-1939 (actually, into 1962, but for the sake of this post 1935-1939!)

  2. Love these. Something about the Bette Davis "Front Page Woman" one really stands out to me. These days you don't often see an ad/promotion with the woman's face so shielded by print. And yet her beauty is what I noticed even before reading the huge red words. <3
