That's a rather strange one, isn't it? I've never seen that one.

Re: Unbelievable Ads

Here's another one for Sygol. I think it's so ridiculous that on one page they have this one, motionpicturesto05moti_0723.jpg and on another they have this one, Selection_001.png I understand that they had to pay for their magazine, but MY GOODNESS! Have some consistency, a la Good Housekeeping, whe...

Usually these comics aren't very interesting. They try, but I just don't like them most of the time. This one I thought was very cute, especially the last frame. Many people would write in asking or guessing who the Answer Man could be. May 1913 Motion Picture Story Magazine.

:lol: Boy, that's the stuff isn't it? When they make some claims, they don't mess around. Notice that, conveniently, none of the first names of testifiers are given. ;)

Re: Motion Picture Story - Special Departments

Another interesting suggestion from the Answers Man. I am a little confused. If they did not use advertisements in the theater, how did they stay open. In other words, my understanding of the purpose of advertisements was to pay for the programs shown. Were they not needed? I guess they weren't nece...
