YOUR LUCKY STAR [MGM, 1930-31] [EXHIBITOR BOOK]

$1,850.00

Folio, stiff pictorial boards, 54 pp., pages are beginning to start, there is some wear to top and bottom of spine, light soiling to covers, but overall a really nice copy of this rare book, near fine in vg wrappers.

With elaborate, richly colored artwork for such varied films as King Vidor’s early talking film BILLY THE KID, Cecil B. DeMille’s MADAM SATAN, TRADER HORN, and with strong Art Deco graphics throughout, this is a very visually striking book. There are full page and double page trade ads for: a proposed Lon Chaney film, THE BUGLE SOUNDS, which would have been a very ambitious production, but was canceled due to his untimely death; the musical GOOD NEWS, with the very distinctive artwork, unsigned, of John Held, Jr.; RED DUST, which, at this point, was being proposed as a Garbo vehicle; as well as full-page sepia-toned photographic portraits of such then major stars as Joan Crawford, William Haines, and Ramon Novarro.
