The Young Rajah Newspaper Advertisement

This is a newspaper advertisement for the 1922 film, "The Young Rajah." This is an unusual ad for the film, that is not seen too often. As I have said time and time again, newspaper ads are not too difficult to find and are very reasonable. They look great in a scrapbook or in a framed collage. This ad lists the movie ticket prices, which are a few dollars less than today's prices, 35 cents for adults, or 25 cents for the matinee. 15 cents for kids, or 10 cents for kids for the matinee. To put that in perspective a loaf of bread during this time was about 12 cents a loaf, a gallon of gas was about 25 cents. I digress, from the interesting economic facts. This is a great example of a movie ad with artwork different from most of the promotional posters and lobby cards.
