Screaming Mimi

Culver City, CA: Sage Productions / Columbia Pictures, 1958. Original pressbook for the 1958 film noir. Based on the 1949 Frederic Brown novel.

One of the weirdest and most wonderful of the Columbia B-noirs, a very faithful adaptation of Fredric Brown's byzantine mystery novel, with Anita Ekberg (pre-"La Dolce Vita") put to good use as a dancing siren, and the Red Norvo Trio performing icy strains of modern jazz both live and in the soundtrack.

One sheet folded once as issued, with one insert, 14 x 15 1/2 inches. Very Good or better, with a faint horizontal fold crease at the center of the insert, wrapper and pages, several tiny closed tears at the edges, and minor toning.

Lyons, pp. 179, 182. Selby (1984), p. 344. Silver, p. 257. Spicer, p. 418.
