1930 Ad Pathe Movie Lookin for Trouble Big Money Eddie Quillan Film PATHE1


This is an original 1930 Art Deco two-page color print ad for the PathŽ movie "Lookin' for Trouble" starring Eddie Quillan from the story by screenwriter, Walter de Leon. "Young Quillan enacts the role of an innocent young man who tries to be a racketeer." (We think this film was made under the title "Big Money" directed by Russell Mack.) Please see both images.

Attention movie buffs! Period Paper is pleased to include, among its many items of early film memorabilia, a rare collection of promotional ads (some lithograph) designed for PathŽ Studios exhibitors highlighting PathŽ's upcoming movies 1930-1931 (including some that were never made perhaps due to its merger in 1931 with RKO Radio Pictures). Many of these ads are illustrated with gorgeous Art Deco motifs making them even more collectible. This collection also includes lithograph portraits of some of PathŽ's top contract stars. A great find for the collector of Hollywood's Golden Age movie memorabilia!
