Taken sometime in October 1954, judging by the overcoats but also because George Cukor’s A Star Is Born opened at the Victoria on 9.28.54. On The Waterfront opened on in late July of that year, so it had been playing a solid two months and then some.

50 or 60 years from now, a considerable portion of the films out now will be as completely forgotten as Sitting Bull, a 1954 B western starring Dale Robertson and J. Carroll Naish.
