The World's Greatest Sinner

El Monte, CA: Frenzy Productions, Circa 1964. Two original two sided advertising flyers for the 1962 film. Produced by Carey's independent production company, and aimed at booking directly with theatres. Rare, this being the only cinema paper we ever seen associated with the pioneering experimental film.

The story of a bored insurance salesman who quits his job, starts a rock band, and turns his fans into, first, a political party, then into a religious cult with himself as the godhead, the film never received official distribution, but has gone on to become a cult classic through midnight screenings and cable television airings. With a soundtrack by a young, pre-Mothers of Invention Frank Zappa.

First flyer: 12 x 10 inches (30 x 25 cm). Near Fine, with a small holograph ink notation to a lower corner.

Second flyer: 12.25 x 9.25 inches (31 x 23 cm). Near Fine, with a short closed tear to one edge.
