Look closely at this shot from the VHS tape.
The Editor's name is Albert Grimaldi, just like the film's producer.
The date sure looks like Monday June 23, 1872.
Can anyone with a 16mm print of this film get a better view? Let me know if you do.

The photographic halftone process wasn't invented until 1871 (see,,,, and many others, several of which mention that even papers like the New York Times didn't publish a halftone photograph until the 1880s), and the newspaper page really, really looks like it says Monday June 23 1872. There are several inconsistencies here.
