Baltimore was a good place to be on February 23, 1957 — judging from this page out of The Baltimore Afro-American. Take a look at what was playing:
The Searchers (1956), which needs no explanation.
7th Cavalry (1957), a Columbia Randolph Scott picture directed by Joseph H. Lewis — followed by The Gamma People (1956).
The Brass Legend (1956) stars Hugh O’Brien, Nancy Gates and Raymond Burr. It was directed by Gerd Oswald.
Robert Taylor and Eleanor Parker in Many Rivers To Cross (1955).
Drango (1957) with Jeff Chandler, paired with The Peacemaker (1956), an early feature credit for Ted Post.
Then there’s Stagecoach To Fury (1957), a Regalscope picture with Forrest Tucker and Mari Blanchard. Looks like a rare booking as the top of the bill.
And sprinkled around other theaters: Clark Gable in Raoul Walsh’s The King And Four Queens (1956); Flesh And The Spur (1957), an AIP Western with John Agar, Marla English and Touch Connors; Phil Karlson’s They Rode West (1954); even James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart in The Oklahoma Kid (1939).
Not sure where I would’ve had my mom drop me off.
UPDATE: Each of these theaters (The Roosevelt, The Met, The New Albert and The Regent) are gone.
