“To most Americans, Hollywood is a heavily-capitalized land of superlatives. Strong and established, it is universally recognized as the movie capital of the world.
It was not always this way. There was a time, a short thirty years ago, when the superlatives were still to be realized, a time when the existence of the movies as a great entertainment medium was limited to the minds of a few men of imagination and enterprise.”
This is a 75 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1947 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
