The Press

One way it’s changed


Lileks spotted this front page in 1933’s Lady Killer (Jimmy Cagney - Mae Clarke - Margaret Lindsay), and then wondered


...look at all that copy. Eight stories[1] above the fold.  Why can't we do that today?
Good question.

[1] Actually, probably more than eight.  The “Post” has an eight-column layout (you can tell because the masthead should be centered on the page).  We don’t see the gutter column (on the left).
