Dick Powell admires his books, back in the days when all authors smoked pipes.
I caught the 1952 film “The Bad and the Beautiful” the other night and was struck by this window display showing copies of “The Proud Land.”
Fred Astaire with Cyd Charisse – as a blond – in “The Band Wagon.”
And, as others have noted, a poster for “Proud Land” appears in the “Girl Hunt” sequence of “The Band Wagon.” I recall reading a book on film history (that’s what we did before the Internet) that said “The Proud Land” was sort of art directors’ boilerplate for movie marquees and other signage. I don’t recall any other examples at the moment. Maybe the Brain Trust will have a few ideas.
