Cool Item Of the Week: Christopher Bean pressbook

Return to Cool Item of the Week Archive
Added: 06/21/2021

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 Christopher Bean, (also released as "Her Sweetheart [Christopher Bean]"), the 1933 Sam Wood romantic comedy (based on the play by Sidney Howard; about the longtime maid of a small town doctor and his family, and the maid owns a painting by a local man, and after his death, his paintings are worth a fortune, but she refuses to sell it, even though it would greatly improve her life) starring Marie Dressler, Lionel Barrymore, Helen Mack, Beulah Bondi, and Jean Hersholt. Note that this movie was Marie Dressler's final role, as she died of cancer right after the making of the movie, thus bringing a premature end to the illustrious career of one of Hollywood's most unlikely leading ladies. Finally, note that MGM probably rightfully feared that moviegoers would not know what a movie called "Christopher Bean" was about, and so they also released it as "Her Sweetheart", with a small "Christopher Bean" in parentheses under it, which certainly was a much more commercial title!

Here are images of the front, back, and two interior 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!).
