Lavenderblue, you got it.  I was trying to be coy and not mention the missing item was a rare coin.  Great job as usual. 

Your thread.

When he gets back to his room he sees that it's wrapped in a newspaper from decades ago.

Thank you Lav.

Funny, but when you mentioned the sepiatone and color scenes, my mind went to the tinted scene in this film, but I consciously thought about an early pre-three strip Technicolor talkie, and dismissed POJ from my mind.  Been awhile since I’ve seen the film in its entirety.

Besides the bandleader, she meets the newest band member, who is debuting with the band at this gig.  They like each other, which raises the ire of the female singer, who has her eyes on the new member.
