Letter: Larry Smith Rialto photo
Comments re: Favorite Old Photo: The Rialto
A big tip o' the hat to Larry Smith for this great photo!
"Courtin' Trouble," the singing cowboy movie advertised on the poster above the Rialto entrance, was released just before Thanksgiving 1948 and made its way to Columbia for screening on Friday and Saturday, March 18 & 19, 1949. Those attending also were treated to a cartoon and Chapter 5 of the 12-part "Federal Agents v Underworld Inc." serial.
On the right (viewer's left) side of the entrance, posters advertise the shows for March 20-21-22 (Station West, with Dick Powell & Jane Greer) and March 25-26 (The Sheriff of Medicine Bow, another cowboy flick, starring Johnny Mack Brown, plus a cartoon and Chapter 6 of "Federal Agents").
