Ahab Hunting the White Whale in Downtown Los Angeles

Exhibitors Herald--World, October 18, 1930:

"The six large banners shown in the photograph above were used on the Warner Brothers Downtown theatre in Los Angeles with striking box office success. They were visible for several blocks. At the time this picture was taken lines converged from two streets to the ticket office. The film exploited was the Warner production, 'Moby Dick,' with John Barrymore."
