RKO RADIO PICTURES 1931-32 YEAR BOOK (1931)

Vintage original 10 ½ x 14" (27 x 36 cm.) exhibitor's book, 54 pages. Completely spectacular presentation of art promoting the films realized and not for the companies season. Filled with concepts by some of the finest graphic poster artists of all time including Armando Seguso, Frederic C. Madan, Patterson and others (images signed by the artists). Amongst the daring pre-code images are those for THE SLANDER GIRL (the smoking gun) which may have ended up as the film WHITE SHOULDERS and the very rare image of topless Dolores Del Rio for THE BIRD OF PARADISE, showing the cut ending of Del Rio's being thrown into the volcano.
