    A Henry Hathaway Collection of Photo Albums/Scrapbooks Related to His Films, 1932-1955. Sixteen total, all bound in maroon leather, each with a film title embossed in gold on the spine, each filled with an assortment of ephemera related to that film including press clippings, newspaper articles, telegrams, letters, production notes, personal snapshots, and (most interestingly) countless original print black and white stills showing never-before-seen behind-the-scenes images of the cast and crew of Hathaway-directed films including (in alphabetical order): "The Black Rose" (1950) (two binders), "The Desert Fox" (1951), "Diplomatic Courier" (1952), "Fourteen Hours" (1951) (two binders), "Heritage of the Desert" (1932), "The Lives of a Bengal Lancer" (1935), "O. Henry's Full House" (1952), "Prince Valiant" (1954), "The Racers" (1955), "Rawhide" (1951), "Silent Pictures," "U.S.S. Teakettle" (re-titled to "You're in the Navy Now") (1951), "White Witch Doctor" (1953) and "407;" famous faces seen in these albums include (in alphabetical order): Gary Cooper, Kirk Douglas, Susan Hayward, Katy Jurado, Janet Leigh, James Mason, Robert Mitchum, Tyrone Power, Cesar Romero, Robert Wager, and Henry Hathaway himself, among countless others (both professional colleagues of the director's as well as personal friends and family); some albums have more clippings than photographs -- each one must be seen in person as our catalogue illustration and description does not do them justice - but go to our website to see more images of this lot. (Please note the leather albums are now in somewhat tattered condition, but the inside items are not affected.)
    Each Binder: 12" x 9"
