Gordon Parks (source and director) THE LEARNING TREE Vintage Original Record$300.00
THE LEARNING TREE 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 only sent to radio stations, where they could play any of the various ads for the film contained on the record.
