Description

    Fox Film Corporation Exhibitor's Book (Fox, 1931-32). Exhibitor's Book (9.25" X 12").
    Fox Film Corporation was formed in 1915 by entrepreneur William Fox, who merged a film distribution chain with a production company. The studio was an early pioneer of sound technology, producing "Fox Movietone" pictures in the mid-1920s. The exhibitor's book offered here - predating Fox's merger with 20th Century Pictures in 1935 - is a time capsule of early film history. Within its pages, you'll find such gems as The Hysterical Age, an unproduced picture with El Brendel, Charlie Chan's Chance with Warner Oland, and Alimony Queens, an unproduced picture with Warner Baxter and Joan Bennett. All the titles are sumptuously illustrated - some by John Held Jr. - and the book is in great condition. It shows corner creasing and creasing at the spine on the cover, a small chip in the cover's right side, and a corner crease in the first page, but is otherwise immaculate. Don't miss out on this rare piece! Very Fine+.
