We were visiting my parents in west Texas, and my youngest brother and sister, little older than my kids, was excited about going to the show. (This would have been late 50s, early 60s.)
Now, those days, kids could get in the Saturday Matinee for a Gandy Milk Carton, and they did this a lot. But this was a SUNDAY show, honoring milk carton passes, something special. It took some doing to round up enough cartons for all the kids and finally, they went trooping off to the theater, to see the movie with the exciting title, John Deere!
In about an hour they were back, mad as a bunch of wet hornets! We asked what happened, and they complained the man at the show had LIED! Seems the advertisement they'd seen for the movie, was a scam! When they got there and gave up the precious milk cartons,..."there wasn't an Indian, deer, moose, or dog, in the show, just a bunch of dumb ole GREEN TRACTORS!!"
