    This is a 1948 Playbill for the Cort Theatre, with a Chesterfield Advertising on back depicting William Bendix as Babe Ruth from the Movie "The Babe Ruth Story" A great Picture Of William Bendix, dressed in a New York Yankee Uniform, and holding a Louisville Slugger 125 Genuine Babe Ruth Baseball Bat. This Playbill is full of great vintage ads, as some seen below. There is also a Historic notice of the importance to continue saving cooking fats. Used Fats was used to make Bombs for the war, but here we are in 1948 after the war still saving it.  On July 26, 1948, Babe Ruth attended the premier of the film about his life, The Babe Ruth Story, which starred William Bendix (ironically Bendix had been a Yankee bat boy in the 1920's.) Ruth however was feeling very ill, and left well before the film was finished. Three weeks later on Aug.16 1948 Babe Ruth Passed away.
