Swell Street Ballyhoo in Louisville

Showmen's Trade Review, June 8, 1940:

"When the recent world premiere of Hal Roach's United Artists release, 'One Million B. C.,' took place at Loew's Theatre, Louisville, Ky., one of the highlights of the campaign was this ballyhoo truck which traversed the entire city. The specially constructed pre-historic animal attracted plenty of attention, as did also the young man and woman attired in costumes similar to those worn by characters in the picture."
