An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Pressbook (pb; measures 11" x 17" [28 x 43 cm]; 14 pages) (Learn More)

Big Brown Eyes, the 1936 Raoul Walsh romantic crime murder jewel thief mystery thriller (a complicated story of a manicurist-turned-newspaper-reporter involved with a police detective investigating a jewel robbery, and there is also a private detective who is actually a thief after the jewels, and after much mayhem and murder, everything works out) starring Cary Grant, Joan Bennett, Walter Pidgeon, Lloyd Nolan, Alan Baxter, Marjorie Gateson, Isabel Jewell, and Douglas Fowley. Note that original release poster material from this movie is incredibly rare! In all our years of auctioning, we have never had even one poster (but we have had the pressbook, so we now know what the posters look like!)

Important Added Info: Note that we have only previously auctioned one example of this pressbook, and that was 9 years ago, and it was in much lesser condition!

Note that in December 2021, we were consigned a truly remarkable collection of pressbooks, and the most expensive one sold for $17,500! In our regular auctions since, we have auctioned many hundreds more from this collection. Now we come to the very end of this collection, which is absolutely the finest collection of pressbooks we have ever been consigned. In this set of auctions, we have the last 23 top quality pressbooks from this collection, and then there are no more! Some of them were folded at one time, but they were stored unfolded for many years, so we left them unfolded, and unless the new owner requests otherwise, we will send them unfolded, because re-folding them would likely lessen the condition. Many of these are ones we have either never auctioned before or only once auctioned before, sometimes many years ago. These were collected decades ago, which was the only time that many of these could be found, and after these auctions are over it may be years (or decades!) before some of these are offered again. They ARE that rare! We have several images from each of these pressbooks. We have given each an overall grade, and ask that you look at our images to get a good sense of the condition of that pressbook, because, since they have many pages, it would take forever to describe their condition in detail. However, EVERY one of these pressbooks is complete and uncut!

Condition: good to very good, NO CUTS. Note that we solely give an overall grade to these rare pressbooks, and tell you whether it is complete and uncut. However, you can view our multiple images of the covers and the interior pages that should give you a good sense of the pressbook's condition. The covers are separated at the spine. The interior pages are fragile, but are complete.
