Boxoffice, Aug. 22, 1953: “Cashing in smartly on (Corinne) Calvet’s personal appearance in Winnipeg, the Airport Drive-In, a stone’s throw from the Stadium, featured "Rope of Sand,” featuring the French actress, opening the film 20 minutes after the ceremonies at the Stadium, giving motorists enough time to see Miss Calvet in person at the ceremonies, then drive several feet over to the drive-in and see her on the screen."
