Your Sunday Magazine editor should find the history of such cases a strong reader interest feature at this time—the series to be titled “Lured” and embellished with scenes from the picture. —For Lobby, Too! You can also make an effective lobby display by using clippings of murders similar to those in “Lured.” Make a montage of the clippings, mount them on a 40" x 60" display board and use a blown- 0 up dramatic still from “Lured” for the center of the clipping montage. Heading copy along the lines of: “LURED” TO A RENDEZVOUS WITH DEATH! WARN PATRONS NOT TO SPOIL SUSPENSE! Put an advance notice in the lobby and insert a small ad in the local paper asking patrons not to spoil the suspense of “Lured” by coming in near the end , of the picture. Display large sign in the lobby reading: "The Management suggests that theatre patrons avoid entering the theatre near the end of "Lured.” The feature is shown at 12, 6, 3, etc.” Page Seven.
