Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1975. Original US program for the 1975 film, with a tipped-in British programme, four leaves, for the Variety Club of Great Britain charity premiere on March 20, 1975. Also included is a second US program for an invitation screening at TCF studios on March 1, 1975.
Directed and written for the screen by Peter Bogdanovich, featuring a score that consists entirely of songs composed by Cole Porter.
The eclectic director's tribute to the musicals of Hollywood from the 1930s and 1940s, which utilized an inventive style that involved non-professional actors singing their lines live rather than the very established use of overdubs. The reception to the film was so poor upon its release that Bogdanovich released a public apology for its quality; however, over time, its innate charm has made it beloved among many film fans and cinephiles.
Both programs 8.5 x 11 inches, 1 leaf, folded card stock, one saddle-stapled, with tipped-in British program 6.5 x 8.75 inches, 4 leaves. Near Fine overall. Scarce.
