Most of the paper dolls on this site are from newspaper archives. All newspaper items have been copied in black and white. I have added color to some of the paper dolls. All of the coloring contests for movies and from ads were found searching through newspapers.

BEN-HUR and Amrah Cut-Outs
August 29, 1943. BEN-HUR: A Tale of the CHRIST was written by Lew Wallace and was published in 1880. This illustrated version of the story ran in the comic section of many papers in 1943 and included cut-outs. This cut-out is of course BEN-HUR. Great book and it was turned into a very good movie starring Charlton Heston.
September 05, 1943. AMRAH, the faithful nurse of BEN-HUR.
