MANAGER'S LETTER Dear Patron: It is with great delight that we announce Columbia Pictures’ “The Happy Time” will have its local premiere .......... at the sleet seatecaiec Theatre. “The Happy Time” is a Stanley Kramer production. In our opinion, it surpasses in sheer entertainment value such of Kramer’s previous hits as “Champion,” “Home of the Brave,” “Cyrano de Bergerac” and “Death of a Salesman.” “The Happy Time” is a very delightful comedy on a very touchy topic—that urge! It happens on the day a boy discovers the world is full of beautiful things—all women! “The Happy Time” stars Charles Boyer and Louis Jourdan and features Marsha Hunt, Kurt Kasznar, Linda Christian, Marcel Dalio, Richard Erdman and Bobby Driscoll. Their performances are warranted to give you the happiest time of your movie-going life! “The Happy Time” is based on the play by Samuel A. Taylor and the book by Robert Fontaine. The play was produced by Rodgers and Hammerstein and was a joyously frank and funny Broadway stage hit. The book was a best-seller which delighted millions. As a motion picture, “The Happy Time” will please you and every member of your family. We urge you to see it.
