Cool Item Of the Week: Destiny pressbook

Return to Cool Item of the Week Archive
Added: 09/14/2015

As many of you know, I, Bruce Hershenson, owner of eMoviePoster.com, have collected pressbooks (and related movie paper like studio yearbooks) for over 30 years, and I have the world's foremost collection of such material. I thought I would share one item with you each week, the type of items you almost surely have never seen before, and which might not come up for sale for DECADES!

So below is the pressbook from Destiny, the 1944 Julien Duvivier & Reginald Le Borg romantic crime melodrama (a weird story of a fugitive on the run who is actually guilty of his crimes, but he meets a farmer and his blind daughter, and falls in love with her, which causes him to get a new view of life, and he risks capture to help her father, but he finds he is no longer wanted, and he is able to start a life with his blind love) starring Gloria Jean, Alan Curtis, Frank Craven, Grace McDonald, Vivian Austin, Minna Gombell, and Frank Fenton. Note that Universal was apparently not too keen on selling this story of a convict redeemed by his love for a spiritual blind girl, and their advertising for the movie shows an image of Gloria Jean smiling in a sexy red dress, giving no indication she is either blind or "spiritual"!

Here is an image of the pressbook's covers and an interior spread:

   

Each week I will showcase a different pressbook (or related item) from my collection (so in just 20,000 weeks or so, I will have shared the entire collection with you!). And remember to check out our previous Cool Items of the Week in our Cool Item of the Week archive (which is fully searchable!).
