Grand Central Murder, the 1942 S. Sylvan Simon New York City railroad train station crime mystery thriller ("SCREAMingly funny! SCREAMingly thrilling!"; "Based on the novel by Sue MacVeigh") starring Van Heflin (billed as "with the sensational new star Van Heflin"), Patricia Dane, Cecilia Parker, Virginia Grey, Samuel S. Hinds, Sam Levene, and Connie Gilchrist. Note that Van Heflin had appeared in a bunch of minor roles prior to this movie, but right before this movie, he appeared in Fred Zinnemann's first feature film, "Kid Glove Killer", where he was the star, and that got him REALLY noticed! This was his next movie, and he was billed as "the sensational new star"!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this is an Australian daybill for releases of MGM movies in Australia in the 1940s. Many examples of this daybill were printed with the title area blank, and then they would overprint posters with the names of specific MGM titles (in this case, "Grand Central Murder"). Note that the border art shows cool action scenes including two boxers fighting, but they do not relate to this specific movie!

Condition: very good to fine.
