What a charming old Poster here Bill, I can't help but wonder what the text on a new version of this would be Smile Something like "Catch Me And I'm Your's " maybe? Smile

Clever title, Bill. I love the posters of the period and I have a collection in book form. This is a fine example and taken so well.
