Rare movie prop newspaper from 1942...
Item # 618965
January 1, 1942
THE BLISSVILLE SUN, Blissville, Maryland, (no date)
* Very rare movie prop issue
We've all seen newspapers used as props in movies, typically with a headline relating to the plot of the movie. Obviously created exclusively for the production of the movie, they are quite rare and seldom come on the collector's market--particular issues from the "golden age of Hollywood".
This issue was created as a prop for the movie "The Man Who Returned to Life" done in 1942 (see Wikipedia for more on the motion picture). The bold headline reads: "SLAYER SENTENCED TO DIE ON GALLOWS" which concerns the star character, Clyde Beebe.
A four page issue printed on high quality newsprint, water staining to the upper left, generally nice condition.
A fascinating rarity and a great item for any rare newspaper collection.
