You Only Live Once

Los Angeles: Walter Wanger Productions, 1937. Original deluxe illustrated pressbook and matching deluxe advertising supplement (with a single ad mat laid in), both unfolded, for the 1937 film.

A beautifully illustrated pressbook and truly comprehensive advertising manual for one of Fritz Lang's greatest American films, and an important film noir antecedent, very much predicting the "crime spree" films that would follow it, notably "They Live By Night" (1948), "Gun Crazy" (1950), and "Bonnie and Clyde" (1967).

Pressbook: Saddle stitched wrappers, 18 pages. Some splitting at the spine heel, else Near Fine, unfolded.

Advertiser's manual: Saddle stitched wrappers: 32 pages. One small cut-out, else Near Fine and unfolded.
