318 Main Street

This could be almost any US city

These are great pics. First car seems to be a '37 Dodge Business Coupe, the right one about 1940 Nash Ambassador. The street scenes in West Coast cities like Seattle were almost identical, the same signs, type of shops and theaters. Main difference is the type of brick and masonry ornateness.

It's a Nash !

1941 model, I think.

Side Shops

A theater with a couple of "side shops!" those were in many of our local single-screen theater buildings back in the day. Seems like many were newstands (one was where I got my comic book addiction). I recall also candy stores and jewelry stores. Yes, a requirement may have been some sort of soda pop signage.

Three Degrees of Separation

Jean Arthur, star of The Devil and Miss Jones, was also in Shane with Brandon De Wilde. De Wilde was in the movie In Harm's Way with John Wayne. John Wayne starred in The Longest Day with Eddie Albert, who got top billing in Thieves Fall Out. Other combinations abound.
