The Story of Temple Drake (Press Sheet and Ad-Sales Catalogue)
London: Paramount Pictures, 1933. 8 pages, 11.75 x 9.5 inches. An extremely rare film, only shown at festivals on occasion since its release, with only one known nitrate print in storage at UCLA. Along with Baby Face, made the same year, The Story of Temple Drake is one of the most famous of the films from the pre-Code area, so controversial that it was ordered never to be shown again after the Motion Picture Production Code was more rigidly enforced beginning in 1934. ISBN: 281AIB1050542.
First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in illustrated wrappers (paperback), stapled. Some rust on staples. 1/2 inch closed tear on rear panel, near spine. Mild surface soiling.
