Description: Paramount May Reproduce Logan Days For Screen

Date: May 21 1930

Newspaper published in: Murphysboro, IL

Source: Original Newspaper

Paramount, giant movitone interest that specializes in world news views, is seriously considering reproduction of Logan Days scenes and ceremonials in Murphysboro next Saturday and Sunday.
The Paramount participation hinges only on time. If Paramount can express a sound equipment truck from Cleveland or Cincinnati in time, world production of the Murphysboro celebration is seemingly assured.
Paramount in New York has been advised the event is of world-wide interest. Whether New York can authorize in time the movement of a major Paramount outfit to Murphysboro from the east, is the question.
Had Paramount had a movietone reproduction unit in St. Louis at the time, the feature would have been assured, according to work to the Logan committee.
If the unit comes, it will remain in the city throughout the two days, “shoot” demonstration scenes including the unveiling of Logan’s monument, and give movie fans throughout the world a close-up of Gen. LOGAN’s home town ceremonials in his honor.
