(20th Century Fox, 1954) An original hand-carved wooden board used for Otto Preminger’s director credit in the opening title sequence of River of No Return. For this Pacific Northwest adventure starring Marilyn Monroe and Robert Mitchum, Pacific Title created the entire credit sequence from hand-carved wooden boards rusticized to appear axe-hewn. When director Otto Preminger was asked about his experience making the film, his only collaboration with Marilyn, he was reported to have remarked, “She had no talent as an actress, but she had one thing the camera gets.” Measuring 15”x41”, the title board is in very good condition with only minimal wear.
