Quick trip to the library

Quick trip to the library, where I looked through the Omaha World-Herald (from Omaha, Nebraska) and the Asbury Park Evening Press (from Bruce Springsteen's future home in New Jersey). I got a few Denishawn and film-related articles, reviews and adverstisements from each paper. Citations will be added to the LBS bibliographies.

One interesting item I came across was an advertisement for The Show-Off. Officially released on August 16, 1926, this Louise Brooks' film played in many cities the same week as Rudolph Valentino's death. And quickly, around the country, many movie houses booked Valentino films to play in local theaters. Among them was the Strand in Omaha. This ad dates from August 24th.
