RKO PRESENTS JOHN STEINBECK'S THE PEARL. [caption title - Complete set of eight color lobby cards].
[Los Angeles]: RKO / National Screen Services, 1948. - Complete set of eight 11 x 14 inch color lobby cards. Small marginal mend on verso of card 6, a few minor marginal nicks, minor soft creases to card 7 (barely visible except on the blank verso), light dust smudges to versos, but a very good or better set. A complete set, including the title card, of the lobby cards promoting the 1948 U.S. release of the 1947 film adaptation of Steinbeck's novella. The film (first released as LA PERLA) was produced in Mexico by Film Asociados Mexico-Americanos in association with Ɓguila Films, and was directed by Emilio Fernandez, who also collaborated with Steinbeck and Jack Wagner on the screenplay. Master of golden age Mexican cinema, Gabriel Figueroa, served as cinematographer, and won a Golden Globe Award for his work on this film. Steinbeck's conception of THE PEARL as a cinematic vehicle from the start (he discussed it as a film with Fernandez as early as 1941), and his active participation in its production, make it of particular significance in the field of Steinbeck- related film. Complete sets are uncommon.
