DescriptionDesign for Living (Paramount, 1933). Fine. Pressbook, Ad Supplement and Program (34 pages, 11" x 17", 32 pages 11" X 17", 20 pages, 9" X 12").
Ernst Lubitsch directed one of the cleverest pre-Production Code comedies of the early 1930s with this delightful film. Fredric March, Gary Cooper and Miriam Hopkins star as three people involved in a ménage à trois that starts out platonically and then gets more complicated. The innuendos and double-entendres fly fast and furious as it all progresses. Offered here is an extremely rare pressbook with all of the advertising pieces any theater owner would want. Also included is a nice condition ad supplement and program. The binding on the pressbook shows some separation but is in generally nice condition with no cuts.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
