Since You Went Away

This is a souvenir program from the 1944 movie "Since You Went Away", starring Claudette Colbert, Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, and Shirley Temple.

The program is 20 pages, with full page, autographed photos of the major stars.  In addition to the four mentioned above, Monty Woolley, Lionel Barrymore, and Robert Walker each earn a full page photo.  The page opposite each photo gives a bio of the actors.

These are the middle pages of the program which detail each major scene in the movie and list each cast member in order of appearance.
