    Description

    Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (RKO, 1948). Fine+ on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.5" X 55") Averardo Ciriello Artwork.
    Jim and Muriel Blandings (Cary Grant and Myrna Loy) are tired of being cooped up in a small Manhattan apartment with their two kids and a live-in maid. While looking for houses in the countryside with their lawyer friend Bill Cole (Melvyn Douglas), they come upon a house that is "a piece of American history." Of course, the beautiful sight of the house in their imagination is nothing at all like the reality of what the broken-down wreck really is. When they decide to build anew, complications naturally arise--from locking doors and unreliable workmen to the whimsies of color choice. A lovely Heritage first illustrated by Italian artist Averardo Ciriello, this poster has been professionally restored to address fold wear and separations, moderate tears, and small border chips. There was some paper loss in the top left corner, and the poster had a tear from the house into Myrna Loy's hand. Fine+ on Linen.
