Captains Courageous (MGM, 1937). Folded, Very Fine-. Pre-War Belgian (24" X 33.5"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
As posters for this title have always been elusive, Heritage is pleased to present this poster for the first time, which was once shown at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Grand Lobby Gallery. This film, based on Rudyard Kipling's classic novel, stars Spencer Tracy as a salty Portuguese fisherman teaching a spoiled child (Freddie Bartholomew) life's values, including the benefits of a hard day's work. Tracy's performance was one of his best and would earn the actor an Oscar for Best Actor. Indications of handling include minor fold separations, small tears, pinholes, and a chip in the right border. Also apparent are unobtrusive smudges and a couple of tax stamps in the right background. The verso has some writing as well as a postage stamp.
