1 Richard Allen; Stephen Rebello Reel Art: Great Posters From The Golden Age Of The Silver Screen
NY Abbeville Press 1988 0896598691 / 9780896598690 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 
The four decades between 1910 and 1950 were the golden age of the American movie poster, an era when wonderful films were promoted through the talents of legendary illustrators like Thomas Hart Benton, Norman Rockwell, Howard Chandler Christy and James Montgomery Flagg, as well as a small army of unknowns. It was a time when big studios lavished fortunes on poster campaigns - from modest one-sheets posted on neighborhood fences to the giant forty-eight sheets that covered entire sides of multi story buildings. Hollywood knew that the right image could seduce millions past the box office and into the theatre. Today such graphics fetch five-figure prices from collectors seeking a Casablanca or a King Kong.
