What's Playing at the White House?

Motion Picture Herald, February 6, 1932:

"Four six-sheets, two three-sheets, seven one sheets, two sets of 11 x 14 lobby photos, and in addition a Western 'Main Street' back drop type painting, with cowboy in full regalia, were used to ballyhoo 'Cyclone Kid' by Otto Meister, manager of the White House Theatre, Milwaukee, Wis. 

It certainly was a 'picturesque' front and one that would make any posterman register a wide smile. Meister also gave out Buzz Barton buttons to every child who brought a grown-up.    

Box-Office returns were most satisfactory."
