[Original Pictorial Lobby Title Card for:] ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE
by Buñuel, Luis, and "Philip Ansell Roll" (i.e. Hugo Butler) [screenwriters]
[Np]: United Artists, 1954. Original 11x14" pictorial title card. Soft creasing toward upper right corner, otherwise very near fine. The title card from the series of lobby cards issued to promote U.S. distribution of the film adaptation of Defoe's novel, cowritten by master director Buñuel and Hugo Butler, then working in self-imposed exile in Mexico in company with his wife and Dalton Trumbo, and writing under various pseudonyms as a consequence of the effects of the Blacklist. The faithful yet stylistically imaginative adaptation starred Daniel O'Herlihy as Crusoe and Jaime Fernández as Friday. It was Buñuel's first color film, and is one of the central productions of his Mexican period. O'Herlihy was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his role after United Artists took on theatrical distribution for the film in the U.S. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76403)
