SONG OF FREEDOM [LE CHANT DE LA LIBERTÉ] (1936) Belgian pressbook$150.00
Brussels: ABC Films, . Vintage original Belgian pressbook, six-panel illustrated brochure, 11 3/4 x 8 1/2″ (30 x 22 cm.), just about fine.
A nice montage of images of Paul Robeson illustrate this pamphlet, which documents how far his star had risen in Europe, following his appearances during the previous year in SHOWBOAT and SANDERS OF THE RIVER.
This film’s rather improbable story had Robeson as a British dock worker who becomes a famous singer, and then learns that he is the rightful king of an African island-country.
