Description

    Fox Film Corporation Exhibitor's Book (Fox, 1926-1927). Hardcover Book (9.5" X 16") (75 pages). William Fox began as a nickelodeon proprietor and by 1915 after winning a legal battle with Motion Pictures Patent Company, he opened Fox Film Corporation. With stars such as Theda Bara and Tom Mix, Fox built a theater chain of over 1000 theaters and paid for such artistic projects as "Sunrise," and such directors as John Ford, Frank Borzage, and F.W. Murnau. Offered here is the exhibitor's campaign book which Fox sent to all of their theaters showing them what the following year's films would be. These books were lavish and beautifully printed affairs. This book is several hundred pages long with portraits of the stars (Tom Mix, Buck Jones, Janet Gaynor and George O'Brien) and portraits of the directors (John Ford, Howard Hawks, F.W. Murnau). There are full color pages of ads for upcoming projects such as "What Price Glory," "Seventh Heaven" and "The Great K&A Train Robbery." This book is amazing in its production and detail. This copy comes with a hard case shell which has split in two. The actual book's covers and interior pages are close to perfect, with only a tiny smudge on the back cover. Very Fine.
