Wrong Times

We were in a diner on Saturday. On the wall behind our table was a black and white poster of Times Square in New York. There was an error on it. I took a photograph of the corner with the mistake.

IMG 1654The date in the bottom right corner of the picture states that the picture is from 1942. The cinema billboard advertises the 3rd Man. Even without checking online for the date of release, I knew that it was well after 1942. The movie’s plot revolves around events in post war Vienna. Even allowing for American ambiguity over the start of the conflict, 1941 and Pearl Harbor is not when World War 2 began, it was definitely not over in 1942.

Checking on my phone, IDMB informed me that the film was released in August of 1949, so the picture is at least seven years later than the tagline.
