DAILY EXPRESS FILM BOOK 1935

M

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.
