"THE GREAT PLANT SENSATIONAL NEWSPAPER STRIPS Every newspaper in the country WANTS to print pictures of Charlie Chaplin as “’The Great Dictator,” the most discussed stills from the most discussed picture of all time. Countless pictures have already been printed in the top newspapers and magazines of the country but these strips are completely NEW. They are available only through United Artists. We offer five strips and suggest that they be planted as a series, one strip eacli day. They can, of course, be used separately but many newspapers will want tlie whole series. Here is a really outstanding service for newspapers in a series of strips that will sell “The Great Dictator” as it should be sold. The five strips are: “The Great Dictator” Broadcasts, Love Comes To Charlie, “The Great Dictator” Relaxes, Chaplin Talks and The Dancing Dictator.

Order mats direct from Exploitation Dept., United Artists Corp., 729 Seventh Avenue, New York City. The vertical strip at the left is matted in two-column width (4" wide), shown here in full size, including type. Order it direct from United Artists Exploitation Dept. Mat No. 5 OR—30c,■ Cut —50c.
