Speaking of Which

Speaking of all that, this poster completely cracks me up.

...at first I thought my favorite part was the Old Man Pants (a style now practiced only by Charles Durning in Coen Brothers movies), but now I think the sockdolager is the non-attribution on the quote, like back in 1941 the American public was so unsophisticated and free from guile that you could flim-flam them into seeing a movie they're not going to like by telling them it's "terrific" on the broadsheet.
It's much better than the 2007 analogue:

"It's Terrific!"
-- Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview
At any rate.
Pssst! It's his sled!
