April 16, 2012: The Silent Years

 

I added 23 more ads today, from January, February and March 1974, and one from April 1971 (because Google had it mislabeled as a 1974 paper). There are eight ads for movies on The Big Show, in the Channel 11 gallery. There's a Tuesday, 2/5/74 ad for "The Philadelphia Story" (Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant), a Monday, 2/11/74 ad for "Becket" (Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole), a Tuesday, 2/12/74 ad for "Gypsy" (Rosalind Russell, Natalie Wood) and a Wednesday, 2/13/74 ad for "Bird Man of Alcatraz" (Burt Lancaster).
