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". I am not aware of what motion picture this issue was created for, but somewhere in the plot the assassination of President McKinley played a role. A four page issue printed on higher quality newsprint than was typical, some light foxing and minor wear at the margins & fold. There are a few discrete archival mends inside.
