    Description

    Dinner at Eight (MGM, 1933). Fine on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Its been over 13 years since we have offered a copy of this poster, This wonderful comedy/drama/romance revolves around a socialite, Mrs. Oliver Jordan, who attempts to host what is supposed to be a simple dinner party to benefit her husband's various businesses. Of course nothing goes as planned as one catastrophe befalls another. Dinner, however, is still served promptly at eight. This film was based on the Broadway hit by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber and boasted an all-star cast including Jean Harlow, Wallace Beery, Lionel Barrymore, Billie Burke, John Barrymore, and Marie Dressler. The posters from this film are beautiful; Harlow gets far more attention than her fellow cast members. Benefitting from professional restoration, this poster no longer shows edge wear, pinholes, small tears, and staining. Also addressed was some paper loss in the lower right border, extending slightly into the background. The borders, white background, a few parts of the image, and the "8" in the title have had airbrush work.
