RKO Radio Pictures 1940-1941 Annual

Hollywood: RKO Radio Pictures, 1940. First Edition, large quarto. The deluxe annual for RKO Studios' 1940-1941 season. Notably, this annual is the earliest advertisement for "Citizen Kane," with a full-page spread featuring Orson Welles, against the working title, "John Citizen, US."

Notable among the offerings featured are several literary adaptations with large die-cut two-color images of the books themselves ("Sister Carrie" and "Kitty Foyle"), along with actors Carole Lombard, Charles Laughton, Cary Grant, Jean Arthur (in "The Devil and Miss Jones"), Ronald Colman, and Charles Boyer. Also featured is a spread for 18 single-reel Walt Disney features.

Brown alligator leather with beveled edges and brown comb binding. 56 pages. Very Good plus, with the fragile comb binding undamaged, moderate wear at the corners; quite attractive overall.
