Showmen’s Trade Review, August 3, 1940:
“A special art front was created for the showing of Universal’s ‘The Invisible Man Returns’ at the Rialto Theatre, Dallas, Texas, by Manager Louis Charninsky, assisted by Francis Barr, in charge of publicity. The smiling gentleman at the side of the box office is not the invisible man in a state of visibility–it’s Louie himself. Note the short subjects are given a marquee plug.”
