Alice's Restaurant, the 1969 Arthur Penn (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this movie) New York musical comedy ("Arlo Arlove Apple Pie"; "now you can SEE anything you want at 'Alice's Restaurant' where the heads of all nations meet"; based on the classic hit folk song, "The Alice's Restaurant Massacree" [sic]; a take-off on the most famous line from the song) starring Arlo Guthrie (who sang the original song), Patricia Quinn (billed as "Pat Quinn"; in the title role as Alice), James Broderick, Michael McClanathan, Geoff Outlaw, Tina Chen, Kathleen Dabney, and William Obanhein (billed as "Police Chief William Obanhein", who was the famous "Officer Obie" from the song), and Pete Seeger & Lee Hays (billed jointly as "Special Appearance Pete Seeger and Lee Hays")
NOTE: Click on linked names to see a biography.
Important Added Info: Note that pressbooks were prepared prior to a movie being released. Often, changes would be made in a movie advertising campaign (billing of actors, different images, etc.), and the theaters would print up special supplements that they would send out with the pressbooks that had already been printed. These supplements are very rare, far more rare than the pressbooks themselves! Some pressbooks would have no supplements, some would have one, and some would have several.

Condition: very good, NO CUTS. Note that we have provided an image of the front and back covers of the pressbook, plus an image of any supplements or heralds (if there are any included with this pressbook), but of course, the winner of this auction will receive the entire single pressbook we are selling (plus any supplements or heralds described above)! Also note that this pressbook is complete and uncut! Given that theater owners purchased pressbooks partly in order to create their newspaper advertising, and quite frequently cut them up for that purpose, it is rare to find a pressbook that IS complete and uncut!
