Cubby Bear, a new cartoon character in 1933, and mogul Roxy at the controls

Something to brighten your Christmas from THS !

Here’s a link to a free show trailer with ads from some businesses in a rural area followed by “Opening Night” (1933) in which a new character, Cubby Bear, tries to sneak into the grand opening of the RKO Roxy, becomes lost, discovers cigar chomping Roxy in his secret control room (so that’s how he ran a movie palace!), then winds up conducting the orchestra. (RS)

Merry Christmas !
