Here's a real rare clip: the cast of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World in a vintage b&w TV spot- and it's cleverly geared toward the actors taking on the mannerisms of the characters they play in the film. Click here to view
I was going through some old theatre pictures I have and I found this one of the Vernon Theatre in Alexandria, Va. This was the first theatre I managed and I was the manger when it closed. It opened in 1940 with "Abe Lincoln In Illinois". It closed March 30, 1976 with "Bobbie Jo and The Outlaw" starring Lynda Carter. For your entertainment, I'm also attaching a picture of the auditorium. 866 seats in an art deco splendor.
