Motion Picture News Blue Book 1929

WAS £39.99 £19.99

Product description

This book is the "Authoritative Who's Who of Filmdom containing biographical data on more than 2,000 actors, actresses, directors, writers and executives." The information is provided for studio executives and newspaper and magazine photoplay editors about the important people who are involved in motion pictures.

Contains an A to Z list providing short biographies, many including film lists, family, sporting interests and appearance. In addition there is a Booking Guide section with complete information on film releases of all companies covering the 1927 -1928 season. There are also numerous advertisements with b/w photographs, plus a colour leaf by MGM.

The dark blue covers have general wear and marks, with surface rubbing wear to corners, edges, spine ends and borders; there is a bumping mark near the top right front corner with a small closed tear, approx. 5mm. Text block edges are dust darkened, with a dark brown water-stain, approx. 2cm. End papers have a lightly soiled appearance but inside page are clean; there is a narrow page break to the rear end papers but the binding is sound.

This is an excellent item for fans of Hollywood and the early film industry.
