Bullets or Ballots, the 1936 William Keighley political crime thriller starring Edward G. Robinson, Joan Blondell, Barton MacLane, Humphrey Bogart, and Frank McHugh. Note that this movie was made directly after Humphrey Bogart's first major hit, "The Petrified Forest", but Warner Bros. still did not believe in him (or possibly the advertising was prepared prior to the release of The Petrified Forest). He was billed a dismal fourth, and Edward G. Robinson was billed large above the title, and Joan Blondell was billed large below the title, but Bogart was billed in small letters after Barton MacLane! In addition, Bogart only appears on a few of the posters, because the main thrust of the ad campaign was pushing Edward G. Robinson!

Important Added Info: Note that we have never before auctioned this pressbook! Note that when studios would prepare pressbooks they would often include a sample of the herald. Most often, the herald is no longer still with the pressbook. Sometimes, the herald by itself will sell for almost as much as the rest of the entire pressbook! This pressbook contains the original herald that was included with it, and it is pictured next to the pressbook below. Also note that we have provided an image of the front and back covers of this pressbook, and of course, the winner of this auction will receive the entire single pressbook we are auctioning (plus any supplements or heralds described above)! Also note that this pressbook is complete and uncut! Given that theater owners received 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!

Condition: good to very good, NO CUTS. The pressbook is complete and uncut. It was once folded across the middle but has been laying flat for a long time. The covers are partially separated at the spine, and there are scuffs in the black background areas at the bottom of the cover.
