I am fascinated by the ads for old movies – they’re the olden-day equivalent of clickbait. Here’s an example from the January 3 1940 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:
They’re hinting that the housekeeper’s daughter is up to something, I guess.
The Housekeeper’s Daughter (1939) is a comedy film with a rather convoluted plot involving gangsters, poison, journalism, fireworks, and alcohol. Whee! YouTube has the whole movie (at the time that I write this), if you’re curious.
