Look what I found! And this movie would be?
[Update: This is “On Our Merry Way,” a curious film in which Burgess Meredith plays a classified ad salesman who masquerades as a reporter. At first glance, I assumed this was the Globe Lobby at The Times. There is, after all, a globe. But the Globe Lobby is round, so this is obviously a set. I’d like to think that Ernst Fegte and Duncan Cramer were influenced by the Globe Lobby. By the way, IMDB says that Duncan Cramer was uncredited as an art director on the film. So much for IMDB.]
OK, how about now?
The exterior of The Daily Banner
And here’s the globe.
Another shot of the globe, establishing that yes, this is a set and a fairly inexpensive one at that.
And what’s this? I didn’t we think saw scenes like this in movies from this era.
