Newspaper created for a motion picture...
Item # 683722
December 11, 1941
NEW YORK RECORDER, An interesting movie prop newspaper which was created for a motion picture, obviously one with an early World War II theme. There is no date, however the U.S. declared war against Germany on Dec. 11, 1941. But the movie could well have been made in the 1950's or 1960's.
* Very rare movie prop issue
Not a "real" newspaper in the typical sense as the title and the content are very generic. Note there is no city or state in the dateline. Typically it was only the created headline which was seen in the movie. In this case the banner headline announces: "WAR IS DECLARED BY U.S." The balance of the text in the issue is simply nonsensical "filler" material to make the issue appear as a regular newspaper.
Four pages, nice condition.
