Intertitle: Best Newsreel Laughs of 1945
09:17:37 Mrs. Truman tries to christen aircraft bomber; tries half dozen times but fails to break bottle on fuselage. Officer takes over & also fails to SOF laughter. GOOD.
09:18:04 Mayor LaGuardia sitting at desk w/ WNYC microphone during New York newspaper strike reads out Dick Tracy cartoon strip on WNYC radio, SOF: “Here’s Dick Tracy, and she’s inside w/ the money; and she says: ’I offered you a thousand dollars, what do you think I am? This is my money!’ And if you remembers she starts stripping & tearing up the laundry. Rip, she’s ripping the laundry there, the little delicate piece of lingerie. Whitwash says: ‘Easy, sister, easy’. And the picture shows a hand of Bethless (?) stretching out, she’s got hold of that iron pop; remember the iron pop she took from the Van Huesen’s gardner’s flat to put the money in? And, crash, she crashes it on his head; knocked out!”
09:18:56 End title: “Know This Emblem - Honor Its Wearer.”
