"An Enviable Possession"

A tiny ad from Motion Picture Magazine, 1927. When a loaf of bread cost 10 cents.. would you buy a "Big Lifelike Photo" of Rudolph Valentino for 50 cents... the price of five loaves of bread? I think so. When I first read this microscopic one column inch classified ad, I thought it said "Dealers Insulted"...Freudian slip? Anyway the people at S. Bram Studios at 729 Seventh Avenue were enterprising folks. I wonder if I could still request that "free list"?
