That week's movies were “A Fistful of Dollars,” “Breakheart Pass,” “The Cheyenne Social Club,” “The Magnificent Seven Ride,” and “Hang 'em High.” There's also a Tuesday, 2/23/82 ad for PM Magazine which featured a story on Clyde Gunther, a Monroe man (“I Find Missing Persons”). Another channel 11 ad is one of two additions to the News/Special Reports Ads gallery, a Monday, 2/22/82 ad for a Dan Buckley series of reports on “The Forgotten Victims.” The other one is a Tuesday, 2/23/82 ad for a 24 News report by Shelley Czeizler on skiing.
