[ Hecht, Ben, and Charles Lederer]
Price: 225.00 USD
[ Los Angeles]: 20th Century-Fox, 1947. 24pp. Folio. Glossy pictorial self-wrappers. Heavily illustrated and with uncommonly substantial text. Light use to corners and edges, but a near fine copy. Original campaign pressbook for this highly praised film noir, directed by Henry Hathaway, adapted from an original story by Eleazer Lipsky by Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer. The film starred Victor Mature, Brian Donleavy, Coleen Gray, and featured a break-through performance from Richard Widmark. The imagery of the ad campaign and the pressbook superbly reflect the atmosphere of the film.
