This Week's Cool Item: Soul of Man pressbook

Return to Cool Item of the Week Archive
Added: 05/11/2020

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 this week, the type of items you almost surely have never seen before, and which might not come up for sale for DECADES!

This week, I have the pressbook from Soul of Man, the 1921 William Nigh silent family relationship good-brother/bad-brother greed-is-good romantic melodrama ("The Screens Supreme Success"; about a very rich man with two grandsons; one feels as he does that wealth is everything, and the other believes in leading a good life; the good grandson meets a blind girl and falls in love with her, but his bad brother pays for an operation to cure her and tries to steal her away!) starring J.H. Gilmore, William Nigh, Leslie Austin, Maurine Powers, Elsie de Wolfe, Charles Sutton, and Hal Brown. Note that this movie seems to have been quite the epic in its day (and the director also stars as one of the grandsons), yet there is very little information about it on the Internet, and most of what there is is not accurate! Note that this is a "lost" film which means that no surviving copies are thought to exist.

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

As part of our bi-weekly club email, 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 in our Cool Item of the Week archive (which is fully searchable!).
