I like saving ads for theatre, music, and other entertainment options from the old newspapers that I look at. If people wanted a day out or an evening out, what could they see?
Here’s a few listings from the November 27 1936 Toronto Globe:
Betty Fischer (later known as Betty-Ann Fischer-Byfield) had quite an interesting story. She was born in Kitchener, Ontario, and was abandoned shortly after she was born; she had a deformed leg and no complete fingers on either hand. She was adopted when she was four, and took up the violin almost immediately afterwards, winning a gold medal at the Kitchener Music Festival when she was 8. She went on to become a member of the Toronto Symphony, and died in 1979.
William Beebe (1877-1962) started his career working at the New York Zoological Park, for which he undertook a series of research expeditions. He gradually migrated into marine biology, and used his Bathysphere to set records for the deepest dive ever performed by a human.
The American Classics website has an entry on Blossom Time. It played continuously, somewhere in the United States, between 1921 and 1943.
The Rotten Tomatoes movie website gives Libeled Lady an 82% rating.
