RKO 1942-1943 RKO’S VICTORY PROGRAM [EXHIBITOR BOOK]$1,750.00
Folio, about 60 pp., limp printed, blue wrappers. Spiral bound, the wrappers originally had a kind of cellophane overwrap, parts of which have peeled off, there is some marginal wear to wrappers, overall very good+.
An impressive book, which touts many double-page trade ads. That includes large 15 x 22” (32 x 56 cm.) ones for Orson Welles’ JOURNEY INTO FEAR, a series of Tarzan films, and one for Disney’s BAMBI (which most Disney collectors would consider, hands down, the finest published illustration art for this film). There are also other large trade ads for ONCE UPON A HONEYMOON, THE BIG STREET, PRIDE OF THE YANKEES, THEY GOT ME COVERED. Notably, there are also single full-page ads for four Val Lewton horror masterpieces (CAT PEOPLE, 7TH VICTIM I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, and THE LEOPARD MAN). As well as a single page devoted to Walt Disney cartoon shorts.
