Description

    The Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner Brothers, 1938). Pressbook (17" X 22").
    This movie, one of the greatest adventure films ever released, has everything: A top-notch cast - including Errol Flynn, Olivia DeHavilland, Claude Rains, Basil Rathbone, Eugene Pallette, and Alan Hale - an exhilarating score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, a great story - which incorporates action, romance, drama, humor, and more - and the glory of three-strip Technicolor. It set a new standard for swashbuckling epics, and crowned Flynn as the unquestioned successor to the great Douglas Fairbanks. As such, paper from this film is considered highly collectible. Offered here is an extremely rare pressbook for this incredible film. The interior pages are in excellent condition, with no blemishes, defects, or cuts. The cover shows some spine wear, with a 2.5" area of separation at the bottom, some dust shadowing on the front and back, a tear on the right side, bends in the bottom corners, and some edge wear on the right side. Also included is a separate ad supplement (no cuts) and an original herald, both in excellent condition. This is a very rare and attractive piece, making this a tempting lot that any Flynn fan will covet. Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $2,000 - up.
