Description

The Seas Beneath (Fox, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41").
In this harrowing epic, George O'Brien stars as a hard-nosed submarine commander tasked with destroying a German U-boat that has been sinking Allied vessels. As the sub prepares for battle, however, O'Brien learns that his girlfriend is an enemy spy, and that her brother and fiancée are aboard the ship he's about to blow out of the water! Largely filmed in and around Catalina Island, this film was one of three that director John Ford made in 1931. Ford, who begun his directing career in 1917, had a substantial resume by this point, and was one of the pioneer directors of sound films. Perhaps best known today for his sprawling and expansive Westerns, Ford actually abandoned that genre in 1926, when studios began to tire of pictures set on the frontier. After making 3 Bad Men in 1926, Ford would "retire" from the genre for thirteen years, returning to the wide open spaces of the American West to make Stagecoach in 1939. In the meantime, he made such landmark pictures as Arrowsmith (1931), The Lost Patrol (1934), The Informer (1935), and Young Mr. Lincoln (1939). The stone litho beauty offered here displays exquisitely. Expert professional restoration has addressed such issues as a tear in the title and in the image area, chips and tears in the bottom and right border, and a large chip in the middle within the heroine's skirt and within the title word "Seas" as well as much work in the background of the image. Also, approximately 1" of the top border and 1" of the left border have been replaced. Offered by Heritage for the very first time, we are unaware of another copy of this poster and this is your opportunity to add this extremely rare poster to your personal collection. From the Berwick Discovery. Good+ on Linen.
