    Description

    Steamboat Bill, Jr. (United Artists, 1928). Uncut Pressbook (Inner Book: 16 Pages, Foldout Cover, and Herald, 9.5" X 12.5").
    This hilarious comedy was the last of Buster Keaton's independent films for United Artists, and is now considered one of his silent masterpieces. This also marked the end of the longstanding relationship between Keaton and producer Joseph Schenck, they made nine fantastic comedies together in all. Keaton plays a hapless son who must prove his worth to his father, a stubborn steamboat captain, and win the hand of pretty Marion Byron. This complete 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 front cover has paper lifts and tears on both sides at the bottom edges, dust shadows on the right and left edges, light staining and smudging, mild spine separations and some rust stains, and the back cover has slight smudging on the outside and a dust shadow on the bottom of the inside, and edge wear on the covers. There are nine pages of advance stories along with an order blank attached in addition to the regular pressbook with paper remnants at the bottom right of last page. There is original tape on the front and back covers used for mailing purposes. Fine/Very Fine.
