BOSTON EVENING TRANSCRIPT, August 16, 1939
* The Wizard of Oz
* Opening day advertisement (eve)

The back page has an historic advertisement in early film history. See images for a 13 1/2 x 9 inch ad for the premiere of "The Wizard of Oz" in Boston. This was the day before the opening for this famous movie. Nice graphical appeal with this ad. (see) Boston, along with New York City were one of the first cities to release this film making this ad rare as such. Al on the back page is a photo headed: "The Lady and the Scarecrow" with some text.
Complete with all 20 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
