March 3, 1944
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 3, 1944
* Movie Casablanca wins best picture
* Academy Awards
* Humphrey Bogart - Ingrid Bergman
Page 17 has one column headings that includes: "MOVIE AWARD GOES TO JENNIFER JONES" "Chosen Best Actor of Year---'Casablanca' Takes 'Oscar' as the Top Picture" and more. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
