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!
