If you watch enough television shows and movies, you might start to notice that a bunch of the same props are used over and over again. Among the more famous is a newspaper that has been passed around from show to show and has, in fact, been reused for more than 30 years.
I don’t know the story behind this prop newspaper, but I assume it was created as a royalty free prop for television shows and movies. Somewhere along the line, the prop became a recurring gag between propmasters or maybe they are just lazy. Don't believe me? Well, here is the proof - try and spot it the next tme you are watching TV.
