July 18, 2011: Fall Film Festival

I added 21 more ads today, all of them from October 1960. This brings the grand total of images on the site to over 11,000! There are eight in the the Channel 11 gallery for movies on The Big Show and Hollywood Spectacular. There's a Tuesday, 10/18/60 ad for "Daniel Boone, Trailblazer" (Bruce Bennett, Lon Chaney, Jr.), a Wednesday, 10/19/60 ad for "Woman They Almost Lynched" (Joan Leslie), a Thursday 10/20/60 ad for "The Atomic Kid" (Mickey Rooney) and a Friday, 10/21/60 ad for "Lady From Louisiana" (John Wayne). There's also a Saturday, 10/22/60 ad for "Alias Nick Beal" (Thomas Mitchell, Ray Milland), a Sunday, 10/23/60 ad for "Desert Fury" (Burt Lancaster), a Monday, 10/24/60 ad for "Two Years Before the Mast" (Alan Ladd) and a Tuesday, 10/25/60 ad for "Dakota Incident" (Dale Robertson, Linda Darnell) and "Tarzan's New Adventure." There are three more WTOL-TV ads in the News/Special Reports Ads gallery, a Monday, 10/17/60 ad for a press conference with ninth district candidates Thomas Ludlow Ashley and Howard C. Cook (rebroadcast on WTOL Radio) and two ads for the Monday night CBS News series Presidential Countdown with Walter Cronkite, a 10/17/60 ad for the one with Senators Eugene McCarthy and Hugh Scott and a 10/24/60 ad for the one with Adlai Stevenson. The 10/17/60 ad incorrectly indicated that channel 13 carried the program. They actually carried ABC's Peter Gunn. There are eight more in the Channel 13 gallery including a Monday, 10/17/60 ad for The Bugs Bunny Show and seven more for movies on channel 13's Fall Film Festival on The Late Show, The Morning Movie and Matinee Theater. There's a Wednesday, 10/19/60 ad for "Night and Day" (Cary Grant) and "Two Guys From Texas," a Thursday, 10/20/60 ad for "Human Comedy" (Mickey Rooney) and "Frisco Kid," a Friday, 10/21/60 ad for "Passage to Marseille" (Humphrey Bogart) and a Saturday, 10/22/60 ad for "Sergeant York" (Gary Cooper). There's also a Sunday, 10/23/60 ad for "Fighting 69th" and "Presenting Lily Mars," a Monday, 10/24/60 ad for "Mrs. Parkington" and "White Banner" and a Tuesday, 10/25/60 ad for "Unsuspected" (Claude Rains, Joan Caulfield) and "Golden Mask." The last two ads are in the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Sunday, 10/23/60 ad for a Ray Coniff concert at the Sports Arena, sponsored by WTOL-AM 1230 and a Tuesday, 10/25/60 ad for the Boston Symphony in Concert and The Toledo Edison Electric Hour on WTOL-FM 104.7. More vintage ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
