Amazing, and I love seeing the fashions characteristic of the 1840s and 50s. Look at that hair!

Image description from Wikipedia:
The Alamo Theater No. 2 in Atlanta, Georgia, with displays for its showing of the American comedy film The Chorus Girl's Romance (1920) with Viola Dana, on page 54 of the December 11, 1920 Exhibitors Herald. The cutout of Viola Dana had a mechanism that made her shoulders, which were mounted separately, move like a shimmy dancer. The chief of police arrived the next day and ordered the mechanism turned off, and the theater operator added a "censored" label to the cutout.
:lol:
