Manchurian Candidate, The (1962)

Moments ago, while watching a scene from the original 1962 version of The Manchurian Candidate, I noticed something very odd. In the scene, Maj. Marco (Sinatra) enters his apartment carrying a newspaper. The headline on the newspaper reports the murder of a senator and his daughter. But on that same newspaper, clearly visible in type at the very top of the page, is a headline for another story, which reads, "Violent Hurricane Sweeps Midwest."

Hurricanes in the midwest? Hel-lo! We don't get hurricanes in the midwest. We get tornadoes.

Why is this important? It isn't. Not at all.
