Today -100: March 25, 1923: Of revolt alarms, Mussolini frowns, and killer comedies

Headline of the Day -100:  

Prussian police are warned to be on their guard for a possible invasion of Prussia by Hitler’s Bavarian forces. The tone of the article, perhaps reflecting sentiment in Prussia, is that Prussian Interior Minister Carl Severing is just being hysterical.

The French military authorities knew in advance of the putsch plot, the Chicago Tribune says, and had “taken every precaution”. I’m guessing they didn’t bother informing the German government, so not every precaution.

Headline of the Day -100:  

An article by George Raffalovich in the NYT Sunday Magazine section describes Frowny Mussolini’s Italy as undergoing “a new Renaissance.” Yes, it’s another
NYT tongue-bath for the Duck.

Elsewhere in the dictator-heavy Magazine is an article about how Stalin is beginning to look like a possible successor to Lenin.

An old man “laughs to death” in a London movie theatre watching some American comedy and... the story doesn’t even tell us what this dangerous film is?
