New York: Walter Reade Sterling, Inc. / Continental Distributing Division, 1964. pp. on single folded sheet, plus pp. inserted herald. Folio (43.5 x 28 cm). Heavily illustrated. Horizontal fold, otherwise fine. The pressbook issued to promote the 1964 film adaptation of Griffin's precedent shattering book, based on a screenplay by Gerder and Carl Lerner (with uncredited contributions by dramatist Paul Green), directed by Carl Lerner, and starring James Whitmore, Will Geer, Sorrell Brooke, Roscoe Lee Brown, et al. Much as did the book upon which it was based, the film was the subject of controversy in parts (many of them regional), and publicity paper is somewhat uncommon. The inserted herald is printed in the form of a newspaper, the Daily Press, with sensational headlines on the recto, but with substantive text about Griffin, his experience, and the difficulty encountered while filming in the South. Surprisingly (or, perhaps not), even today one occasionally encounters uninformed individuals who, without a shred of evidence, deny the authenticity of Griffin's account, and/or perpetuate falsehoods about the circumstances of his death.
