My third and probably final addition to this lovely series of pictorial film annuals published by the London Daily Express in the 1930s. It has 200 pages, with loads of glorious full page pictures ( mainly b&w) of the stars and films of 1935.
I got it on Amazon, and not too expensive.
Again, some absolutely stunning color plates as below.
In 1935, the top grossing films were MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY, BECKY SHARP, TOP HAT, CURLY TOP, BARBARY COAST, ANNA KARENINA and CAPTAIN BLOOD.
Oscar winners were MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY, best film.
VICTOR McLAGLEN, best actor for THE INFORMER.
BETTE DAVIS, best actress for DANGEROUS.
Judy Garland signs a contract with MGM.
Film debuts included HENRY FONDA in The Farmer Takes a Wife;
JOAN FONTAINE in No More Ladies;
OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND in Captain Blood;
DANNY KAYE in Moon Over Manhattan.
Here are some photos from 1935 films ( not from the book).
