The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky

Culver City, CA: RKO Radio Pictures, 1952. Original Pressbook for the 1952 film, released on a double-bill with "The Secret Sharer" and collectively given a new title, "Face to Face." This pressbook was produced prior to release and only advertises for 1 film.

Based on the story of the same name Stephen Crane, and written for the screen by James Agee. A two-part film released as "Face to Face" in 1952, with the second half of the film based on Crane's story ("The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky"), and the first half based on a Joseph Conrad story ("The Secret Sharer"), starring James Mason and Gene Lockhart. Equal parts nautical drama and hilarious western, unique during its time, with no apparent connection between the two segments.

4 pages, folded, 11 x 17 inches. Very Good plus, with a horizontal fold at the middle, a corner crease, and light soil.
