Cool Item Of the Week: Moontide pressbook

Return to Cool Item of the Week Archive
Added: 11/06/2017

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!

This week, I have the pressbook from Moontide, the 1942 Fritz Lang & Archie Mayo romantic film noir melodrama ("DIFFERENT! Jean Gabin is not only an altogether new type, girls! He's got a different technique of love making. Don't ask! See it - in MOONTIDE..."; "Thrill to discovering a new star!"; a strange movie about a waterfront worker who is afraid he may have killed a man when he was drunk, and he hides out on a barge with his best friend, but he meets a prostitute who tries to kill herself, and he lets her live there as well, and the friend is jealous and afraid that she will leave him the odd man out, and he tries to get rid of her) starring Jean Gabin ("His first American picture!"), Ida Lupino, Thomas Mitchell, Claude Rains, Jerome Cowan, and Helene Reynolds. Note that legendary director Fritz Lang had left Germany to escape Hitler in the early 1930s, and when he began making American movies, what he made was incredibly dark. The credited director on this movie is Archie Mayo, but it is known that Lang directed portions of it, which makes sense, because this movie too is extremely downbeat.

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!).
