Shield for Murder (Original Film Pressbook)
United Artists, Los Angeles 1954 - Original pressbook for the 1954 film noir, based on the 1951 novel by William P. McGivern.Howard W. Koch, director of "The Girl in the Black Stockings" (1957) here creates an unsparing view (for its time) of the violence and corruption often seen behind the badge of a police officer. Barney Nolan (Edmond O'Brien) becomes a bad cop in an otherwise cozy suburban atmosphere, then deconstructed and invariably led to a befitting death (Silver, et al).12 pages, saddle stitched, 11 x 17 inches. Very Good plus. Faint horizontal fold crease at the center of the wrapper and pages. One corner with a short crease, and a couple of tiny closed tears, else bright.Selby (1984), p. 360. Silver, p. 264-265. Spicer, p. 418.
