An inside page has the a review of the "new" film "Modern Times", considered by many as Chaplin;'s greatest film. The two column heading under "The Screen" reads: "Heralding the Return, After an Undue Absence, of Charlie Chaplin in 'Modern Times'" with caricature of Chaplin. (see) Also a one column heading: "CHAPLIN FANS JAM BLOCK AT OPENING" with subheads. (see) The same page also has a opening day advertisements as well. (see):
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 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. Very nice condition.
