A collection of cinema material relating to the author's work

Various cities: Various Publishers, 1942-1959. A collection of 15 pieces, including vintage posters, pressbooks, and still photos relating to adaptations of author Nevil Shute's work into film in the twentieth century. The adaptations represented here show a brilliant cross-section of directorial, writing, and acting talent, including Stanley Kramer, Nunnally Johnson, Henry Koster, Irving Pichel, R.C. Sherriff, Anne Baxter, James Stewart, Marlene Dietrich, Peter Finch, Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Fred Astaire, Otto Preminger, and Anthony Perkins. The collection includes:

"The Pied Piper" (1946): 2 original stills from the film, and 1 still from the 1980 television re-release.

"No Highway in the Sky" (1951): the US one sheet poster and 4 stills from the 1985 television re-release.

"A Town Like Alice" (1956): the UK three-sheet and one sheet posters, and the US half sheet poster.

"On the Beach" (1959): the preferred US Style B one sheet and the Polish one sheet poster for the film, both quite striking and quite scarce. The US pressbook, 2 original stills from the film, and 1 still from the 1990 US reissue of the film for television.

Some repairs to the poster for "No Highway in the Sky," else all material is in Very Good plus to Near Fine condition.
