Regent Theatre (Youngstown, Ohio)
Special attraction, Regent, May 23, 24, & 25, Tues., Wed. & Thurs. : on the same program, "Professor Creeps," with Mantan Moreland, and selected shorts and comedy.
A collection of eight different posters to advertise showings on Tuesday through Thursday, May 23 through May 25, 1950, of two motion pictures, and short subjects, at the Regent Theatre in Youngstown, Ohio.
All of the posters, known as window cards, are on cardboard that has been covered with orange paper. The printed text is at the top. On the lower part are images from one of the two motion pictures currently showing, images that have been cut out from larger posters and pasted on.
Two of the posters have images from the film, "Professor Creeps," while the other six have images from a second motion picture showing at the Regent that week, "Reet, petite, and gone," starring Louis Jordan and June Richmond.
Nowhere on the six posters for "Reet, petite, and gone" does the movie title appear in full; only portions of words or cast members' names only are present.
