    Description

    Steamboat Bill, Jr. (United Artists, 1928). Pressbook (9.5" X 12.5", Multiple Pages).
    This hilarious comedy was the last of Buster Keaton's independent film for United Artists, and is considered one of his silent masterpieces. This also marked the end of the long standing relationship between Keaton and producer Joseph Schenck. The two made nine films in all. Keaton plays a hapless son who must prove his worth to his father, a stubborn steamboat captain, and win the hand of the pretty Marion Byron. This pressbook is full of fascinating material related to the film, including images of the posters, all of which are completely different from each other. The spine has separation and there is tape and minor staining on the covers, but the press material is all intact, including the original herald. A very rare and special item from one of comedy's greats. Fine/Very Fine.
