Cool Item Of the Week: Tumbleweeds pressbook

Return to Cool Item of the Week Archive
Added: 10/09/2017

As many of you know, I, Bruce Hershenson, owner of, 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!

This week, I have the pressbook from Tumbleweeds, the 1925 King Baggot taming-of-the-West silent pioneer homesteader cowboy western ("Story by Hal G. Evarts adapted for the screen by C. Gardner Sullivan"; "A William S. Hart Production"; set in 1899, when the bulk of the West was being taken over by homesteaders, and Hart is helping a group of homesteaders, but he is falsely arrested, and breaks out of jail to prove his innocence) starring William S. Hart, Barbara Bedford, Lucien Littlefield, J. Gordon Russell, Richard Neill, and Nino Cochise (grandson of the legendary Indian chief). Note that William S. Hart had been the number one western star throughout the 1910s, but the 1920s saw the coming of a new breed of movie cowboy, and Hart only made a handful of movies in the 1920s, and this, his very last movie, was one of his very best! It is interesting to note that an expert told us that William S. Hart was unhappy with how United Artists distributed the movie, and had it withdrawn from circulation until 1939, when he allowed it to be re-released by Astor Pictures. Likely, this helps account for the extreme rarity of the first release 1925 movie paper (we have only auctioned a very few items from the first release in all our years of auctioning)!

Here is an image of the front cover and two interior poster pages:

Each week I will showcase a different pressbook (or related item) from my collection (so in just 25,000 weeks or so, I will have shared the entire collection with you!).
