Honoring Ronald Reagan, Warner Bros. Re-releases, Re-titles "Kings Row"

Funny story written by Ralph E. Shaffer

Burbank, CA. Exclusive to The Spoof. "Kings Row," the 1942 film that made Ronald Reagan a star, will be re-released and re-titled by Warner Bros. this summer as part of a tribute to the nation's 40th president.

The credits, which originally had Ann Sheridan in the top spot, will move Reagan's name to that first billing.

The new title sprang from a list of films recently shown on a movie channel, in which "Kings Row" was paired with "A Farewell to Arms." In "Kings Row," Reagan played the role of a young man who, upon awakening in a hospital to find both legs had been amputated, shouted in anguish the line for which he is best remembered, "Where's the rest of me?"

In a stroke of genius, an unidentified aide at Warners suggested the film be re-titled "A Farewell to Legs."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
