Deluxe cuttings books

Scope and Content

A series of four very large volumes which are identical in format, containing cuttings from local and national newspapers, and film and theatre magazines. They are taken principally from British and American publications, and they relate to a number of RD's films and stage productions. In addition to reviews there are longer articles on specific plays or films, on individual actors and directors, pieces on RD's film contracts and plans, a number of autobiographical and biographical pieces, and some more general articles about film. Where cuttings relate to films originally released during an earlier period than the covering dates given for the volume itself they are generally retrospective pieces, or reviews of re-releases.
