Barton Fink

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1991. Original Press Kit for the 1991 film, "Barton Fink," directed, produced, and written for the screen by Joel and Ethan Coen.

An impressive piece from one of the more ambitious films in the Coen Brothers' oeuvre, a key film about Hollywood that is a meditation on the long-standing frustration serious writers have had when confronted with the task of screenwriting. Based largely on the experiences of playwright and erstwhile screenwriter Clifford Odets.

Eight still photographs from the film, all black-and-white silver gelatin prints, with descriptive information at the bottom of each. The photographs are housed in a sack paper envelope, rubber-stamped "BARTON FINK / MINI SET 10 STILLS." Laid in beside the photographs are three announcements for the film's release, including film credits, production information, and press releases. Photos and documentation housed in a 2-color pocketed Twentieth Century-Fox folder as issued.

Photographs are in Fine condition; folder is about Near Fine, with some brief stressing at a couple of edges.
