    Description

    RKO Exhibitor Book (RKO, 1940-41). Exhibitor Book (Multiple Pages, 11.5" x 14").
    This campaign book from RKO for their 1940-1941 season features many important pages. The studio announced that their new prodigy, Orson Welles, will make John Citizen, U.S.A (better known as Citizen Kane); production on Too Many Girls, during which Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz would meet and eventually marry; Carole Lombard in Mr. and Mrs. Smith; Jean Arthur in The Devil and Miss Jones; and others. Also featured is Li'l Abner with art by Al Capp, and the beginning of The Saint detective series. And, since RKO distributed the Walt Disney cartoons, one page is dedicated to the release of 18 cartoons with illustrations of Donald and Daisy Duck, and Donald's nephews. Their flagship character, Mickey Mouse, is nowhere to be seen, illustrating the end of his tenure with the studio. The book has smudges on several pages and light cover wear. Very Fine.
