About this Item

Promotional and souvenir brochure for silent movie epic about the building of the transcontinental railroad! 4to. 30.5 by 23 cm. 20 pp., plus wraps. The movie starred George O'Brien and Madge Bellamy. The movie boasted a cast of thousands and overcame many logistical challenges in its making, which took three years. Two entire towns were built just for the film, for example. The movie marked Ford's first major success as a director. The brochure discusses the challenges in making the movie in addition to providing a synopsis and biographical information about the actors, Ford, and producer William Fox, a brief history of the laying of the railroad, a photo spread, and a celebration of Abraham Lincoln, who played an important role in getting the transcontinental railroad project started. Besides the photos, there is a wonderful two page color plate reproducing a watercolor of the movie climax, and both the front and rear cover have full-page color illustrations. Light wear.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
