LEARNING TREE, THE (1969) Rare vinyl record of radio spots

$300.00

Gordon Parks (screenwriter, director) Vintage original 12 x 12″ (30 x 30 cm.) vinyl record, in a blank white paper sleeve, JUST ABOUT FINE.

THE LEARNING TREE was the first movie directed by an African American that was financed and distributed by a major studio. It was Parks’ first feature film, and adapted from his novel of the same name, an autobiographical work about a black teenager growing up in Depression-era Kansas. This is a rare record, not sold to the public but sent only to radio stations, where they could play any of the various ads for the film contained on the record.
