Weekend Event: Dollars and Cents

Here are a couple posters from the 1971 Warren Beatty/Goldie Hawn caper movie $, which also had Gert Frobe (Goldfinger/Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) in a supporting role. It's official title is $ but I've sometimes seen it in tv listings as both "Dollar$" and just "Dollars" as well.






Definitely not the best movie ever made, but for some reason, I end up watching it whenever I see it listed.

Weekend EventS Starting Tomorrow!

30 - 2 Friday - Sunday Weekend EventS: Dollar & Cents (symbols) and Mascots/Spokespeople.

Ads that have the dollar and/or cents symbols in them---obviously for prices.

Mascots and/or spokespeople featured in ads.

ETA: Many thanks to write_light for this helpful suggestion re: dollar/cents ad:

Tip: Google ads (image search) using

+"Ncents" / +"Ndollars"

where N=any number you want.

So far this has made dollar and cent signs appear reliably.
