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.

The movie did not receive good reviews, but hey, it has Dick Van Dyke and Edward G. Robinson - two actors that I really like.
