Inherit the Wind (1960)
First seen at [00:19:50], and later clearly seen at [01:15:26], Fredric March holds a paper fan advertising "Compliments Mason’s Funeral Parlor". While many other townspeople, court observers and jurists, carry similar fans, it is noteworthy that March clearly displays the advertisement in several key scenes since his character, who dies at the film’s end, is a thinly-veiled depiction of William Jennings Bryan, who was a freemason and who died shortly after the trial. Or it could be unrelated.

Inherit the Wind (1960). Directed by Stanley Kramer, written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee. Spencer Tracy, Fredric March, Gene Kelly, Dick York, Donna Anderson, Harry Morgan, Claude Akins, Noah Beery Jr. 128 min. USA, English. Black and White, Mono. (Drama)
