Alas, the newspapers in Charlie Chaplin's brilliant Modern Times do not report that a new tax bill may be needed. Among the items in the news, however, is LIMITED FARM BILL FAVORED, BILL AIDS OWNER ON FORECLOSURE and good ol' 3 NAMED TO FIX LIABILITY COSTS.

Modern Times came out in 1936, which makes it the earliest movie I've seen so far that has these headlines in it.

I'll admit that I'm intrigued by "Two Men Held In Trunk Slaying Mystery After Accused Woman Is Released". I'll be keeping an eye out for that one, too.
