Description

    RKO Exhibitors Book (RKO, 1940). Hardcover Book (11.5" x 14.5"). This campaign book from RKO for their 1940-1941 season features many important pages. First of all, the studio announced that their new prodigy, Orson Welles, would make "John Citizen, U.S.A." which of course went on to become one of the most important films in the history of the cinema, "Citizen Kane." Next is the announcement of "Too Many Girls" in which Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz met, eventually marrying, of course. Then there is Carole Lombard in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," Ginger Rogers in "Kitty Foyle," and Jean Arthur in "The Devil and Miss Jones." Also featured is "Li'l Abner" with art by Al Capp, and the beginning of "The Saint" detective series. And, since RKO distributed the Walt Disney cartoons, one page is dedicated to the release of 18 cartoons with illustrations of Donald and Daisy Duck, as well as Donald's nephews. There is some wear on the cover, with a small glue stain on the logo. The inside pages are in beautiful shape. It is hardbound in an alligator finish. Very Fine+.
