This newspaper advertisement features the two stars of the film The Cheaters, Isabel McDonagh (billed as Marie Lorraine) and Josef Bambach.

The Cheaters had initially been completed as a silent film in 1929 but, as this advertisement suggests, was later reinvented as a talking picture.

It had in fact been converted to a partial talkie to improve its commercial prospects, since local audiences had by then largely abandoned silent feature films for films with sound.

The exact date and source of this advertisement are unknown.
