Cinema Pressbooks 1920-1940 reproduces on microfiche 774 pressbooks promoting the films of the eight major studios - MGM, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Brothers, Paramount, RKO, Columbia, Universal and United Artists - as well as smaller independents.
Filled with visual and textual detail, from posters and stills to press stories and reviews, the pressbooks are invaluable records of cinematic creation and promotion.
