Weekly Movie Poster Auction Format Change

Our Weekly Movie Poster auctions will close with a live auction on HA.com's proprietary platform, Heritage Live!, beginning with the auction that ends Sunday, April 13. Each lot will now be offered one at a time, in lot number order, in a live auction beginning at 8:00 PM CT; with live bidders on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. Bidders in our previous Signature auctions will recognize the format as it is the same platform utilized by live Internet bidders at the time of the auction sessions. There will be no change in how bidders place their secret maximum bids during the week the auction is open on the Heritage Auctions website. Once bidding on the Heritage website ends, 2 hours before the live session starts, bidders will still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live! All existing bids will compete with any live bidding during the Heritage Live! auction. Each lot will open, request live bids, and then close when the bidding is finished.

You will be able to get to the Heritage Live! bidding software from many pages on the website, including the home page, each lot page, the auction home page, MyBids, and MyTrackedLots. For more information about Heritage Live, please visit HA.com/live. If you have any questions regarding this exciting new development, please contact Grey Smith at 1-800-872-6467 x1367.

Description:
Superman Cartoon Stock (Paramount, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Just after Superman made his dramatic appearance in Action Comics in 1938 and rose quickly to fame, he became the subject of Hollywood speculation. Republic Pictures wanted to turn the Man of Steel into a serial, but Paramount got the rights first and decided to create a series of cartoons instead. Under the leadership of Max and Dave Fleischer, Paramount turned out 17 cartoons and those shorts are considered some of the best work to emerge from Paramount's cartoon division. Paramount did not issue individual one sheets for the series, but instead, opted to create this stock one sheet with a blank imprint area where the individual cartoon titles could be written in or printed. The poster has a very slight fold separation at the top of the vertical fold with a bit more separation along the bottom quarter of the vertical fold. This section has been reinforced on the verso with archival tape. There was also a tiny hole with paper loss at the lower center point and in Superman's foot. Both of these areas had small bits of paper added, colored and reinforced with tape on the verso. There is also some tape reinforcement of the other center points. None of these issues are distracting and the poster is one of the best examples of this one sheet we've ever seen. It remains one of the most sought after posters in the hobby and has crossover appeal to both movie poster, animation and comic book collectors. Fine/Very Fine.
