New York: Angelika Films, 1988. Two Spanish promotional flyers for the premiere of the epic 1942 Italian film version of Ayn Rand's controversial 1936 novel. One flyer is full-color and in a handbill style, the other cut to look like a book, and opens to reveal the film's details, along with the logo of the Spanish distributor, Una Distribucion.
"We the Living" was Ayn Rand's first published statement against communism, and its very faithful adaptation by director Alessandrini, released as two separate films, caused a predictable stir all over Europe. The initial release never left the continent, and was shuttered in a vault for over 25 years. It was then rescued by Rand herself in the late 1960s, restored, and had its US premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in 1986.
Both flyers 4 x 6 inches. About Near Fine.
