it in the newspapers. .

“Through the Courtesy of Love” is a natural for radio announcers who like to give their plugs with a little different twist to ’em. F’r instance: “We are now going to play ‘Through the Courtesy of Love’ — through the courtesy of the Strand Theatre which 1s now showing “Here Gomes Carter!” in which the song is featured.”
If your organist is still around have him play picture’s songs while lyrics are flashed on screen. Naturally, he gives film big plug in spiel that accompanies his playing of the songs.
GIRL IN CLUBS
Might be worth your while to hire good-looking girl to make rounds of taverns and nite clubs or any other place where customers inquire about cover charges to sing “Courtesy” song through courtesy of your theatre. Wouldn’t be too
expensive, would it?
Local florist might use ‘“‘Courtesy” song title as catch line in window display. Like — “Through the Courtesy of Love we are offering this plant, etc., at a special price.”
