    Description

    RKO Exhibitor Book 1931-32 (RKO, 1931). Exhibitor's Book (11" X 14"). This is, without a doubt, one of the most attractive exhibitor's books we've ever come across, featuring full-page, full-color paintings by such artists as Frederic C. Madan, Armando Seguso, Russell Patterson, and Frank Bensing, promoting upcoming films for the years 1931 and 1932, including Bird of Paradise and The Dove, both with Dolores del Rio, Marcheta, featuring Richard Dix and Irene Dunne, The Woman Between, with Lily Damita, Symphony of Six Million, Miracle City, Glamour, Every Girl, Exposed, Love Affair, The Slander Girl, three new comedies by the team of Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey, and more. Of course, some of these films would never be made, and some would undergo changes of title or cast, but the book itself is a beautiful artifact from a truly glamorous time in Hollywood history. Also featured are full page portraits of such lovely stars as Hope Williams, Ina Claire, Irene Dunne, Lily Damita, and more. One look at these marvelous vintage illustrations, and you'll find yourself spellbound by their classic beauty. The book itself has survived the intervening decades nicely, with only some slight edge wear, light spine wear, and a bit of wear on the first page, to show its age. This exquisite book will certainly be the centerpiece of any vintage Hollywood collection. Very Fine+.
