Hell's Angels

N.p. Caddo Company, 1930. Vintage program for the premiere of the 1930 Pre-Code film, which was famously held as a gala event at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Howard Hughes' most expensive and ambitious production, a story about World War I combat pilots, today still a dazzling work of blockbuster action and actual aerial biplane footage. Originally conceived as a silent film and then retooled as a talkie in the wake of "The Jazz Singer" (1927). Most of the film is shot in black and white, but one sequence is in color—the only color footage ever released of actress Jean Harlow before her untimely death.

8.75 x 11.75 inches, bifold. Very Good, with a few light dampstains on the front wrapper, and a short closed tear to the bottom fold.
