A 1954 Re-Release (re-titled "Roaring Timber" for this re-release) Theatrical Movie Pressbook (pb; measures 11" x 17" [28 x 43 cm]; 4 pages) (Learn More)
Edna Ferber's Come and Get It, the 1936 Howard Hawks & William Wyler romantic love triangle family relationship melodrama ("It's tough.... It's rough....! No punches pulled...!"; "Again Edna Ferber's pen writes with the sweep of 'Cimarron' and the grandeur of 'Show Boat'"; "From the famous novel by Edna Ferber"; about an aspiring businessman who does not marry the girl he loves, because he is set on becoming a major success, and his best friend marries the girl instead; he marries a different woman and has two kids with her, a boy and a girl, and when they grow up, he goes back to see his old friend and the woman he loved; he discovers that the woman died, but the friend had a daughter with her, and she is a duplicate to the woman, and of course, the now old man falls in love with her, but pretends solely to have a "fatherly" interest in her; much more happens, including his own son falling in love with the daughter, and it is an extremely strange movie!) starring Edward Arnold, Joel McCrea, Frances Farmer, Walter Brennan (winner of the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film), Andrea Leeds, and Mady Christians. Note that Frances Farmer plays the dual role of both the lost love of Edward Arnold, and the daughter of that woman, grown up. She does an incredible job, because she makes the two women seem completely different, and you have no trouble believing that they are not the same person. Also note that director Howard Hawks wanted to change the story from the Ferber source novel, and Sam Goldwyn, the producer, strongly disagreed, and they battled over it, and ultimately, Hawks was fired, near the end of filming. Goldwyn brought in William Wyler and it is thought that Wyler directed the last 30 minutes of the movie, but no one is too sure!
Important Added Info: 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!

Overall Condition: very good. The pressbook is complete and uncut and it was never folded. It has very minor wear around the edges. (Learn More)
