Apparently, in 1939 only boys, and “modern” boys at that, enjoyed watching exciting crime movies at the cinema!
From the archives of Media History Digital Library: “Boy’s Cinema & Modern Boy” movie magazine featuring one of the Universal “Crime Club” series, Inside Information (1939), with Dick Foran, Harry Carey, June Lang, and Mary Carlisle.
Heavens to Betsy! Can’t have our “modern” girls watching that spine-tingling stuff, can we?
One of my favorite movie actors, Jimmy Stewart, from Picture-Play Magazine, 1938. Early in his career, Jimmy appeared in quite a few short subjects: Art Trouble (1934), Important News (1936), and the Screen Snapshots series,to name a few. Also, Jimmy narrated various military-related shorts during and after WWII. Gotta love him!
