Cool Item Of the Week: No Greater Glory pressbook covers

Return to Cool Item of the Week Archive
Added: 09/19/2011

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 covers from "No Greater Glory", the 1934 Frank Borzage Germany juvenile futility-of-war melodrama ("The screen's mightiest soul-stirring triumph!"; "from the world-famous novel by.. Ferenc Molnar"; set in a German inner city, where there are two rival gangs of teenagers who fight for possession of a playground; they form into armies, and have many fierce battles, and ultimately, one side wins, but one of their leaders dies as that happens; it is revealed at the end that it was all for nothing, because the playground is about to be bulldozed to make room for a new building!) starring George P. Breakston, Jimmy Butler, Jackie Searl, Frankie Darro (Darro started in 1924 as a 7 year-old child actor, and was immediately in much demand; after 13 movies, he was paired with Tom Tyler in "Let's Go Gallagher", and they were soon a regular team, appearing in 23 movies over the next 4 years; unlike most child stars of the time, his career was not derailed by his entering adolescence, and he continued to play minor roles, often the leading man as a teen, over the next 12 years; he served in World War II, and then returned to movies, appearing in a total of 173 movies, last acting in 1975, the year before he passed away!; note that in the Tom Tyler movies, he was often billed as "Frankie Darro and His Pals"!) and Donald Haines. Note that it seems likely that the writers of "West Side Story" borrowed heavily from this Molnar play (which they merged with Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet")!

Here is an image of the front cover and the back "poster page" (see larger images by clicking on these thumbnails).

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!).
