    Description

    Bette Davis Pressbook Lot (Warner Brothers, 1942-1945). Pressbooks (4) (11" X 17"). One of the most compelling stars of the twentieth century, Bette Davis made her Broadway debut in 1929 and signed a contract with Universal in the following year. By 1932, she moved to Warner Brothers, where she quickly became one of their top stars. Offered here are pressbooks from four of her most popular films, all of which have been folded horizontally: Now Voyager (1942) has some light foxing on the front cover; Old Acquaintance (1943) has some pages separating at the spine; Mr. Skeffington (1944) shows some edge wear and minor tears; and The Corn is Green (1945) shows fold wear on the cover. Of course, all of these press books detail the poster campaigns for the movies they promote. This is a great opportunity for any Bette Davis collector to score a pile of pressbooks from some of her greatest films. Fine/Very Fine.
