"Tortilla Flat" Coloring Contest, 1942
The movie, Tortilla Flat, was based on the novel by John Steinbeck about a California fishing community. The film stars Spencer Tracy, Hedy Lamarr, John Garfield, Frank Morgan, Akim Tamiroff, Sheldon Leonard, Donald Meek, John Qualen and Allen Jenkins. The director was Victor Fleming. I have never seen this movie but it has very good reviews.
The coloring contest appeared in a Pennsylvanian newspaper in 1942.
