       I was researching on and found this photo in a copy of the Morning Star (Rockford, Illinois newspaper) from Sunday, January 30, 1944.  Okay, first of all, the above photo is my photo since the photos in especially old newspapers are awful!  I think they more resemble ink blot tests than actual photos! So, if the newspaper had a good copy of the photo, this is what it would have looked like.

       Caption under the photo (from the newspaper) -- Charles Sherlock [yes, Grandpa Charlie], Cary Grant and Warren Douglas [the guy on the far left is cut out of the newspaper photo]  are shown above in a scene from "Destination Tokio" [don't they have spellchecker?], the Warner Bros. drama of the Tokio [yes, their spelling , not mine] attack, which will be presented at a half-million dollar war bond premier at the Coronado theater, together with a Camp Grant stage show, "Khaki Kapers" on Feb. 10.  Tickets for the show are being issued with each war bond sold at the Coronado theater.  Up to last night 900 of the 2,500 seats had been sold.
