    Description

    The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer (RKO, 1947). French Grande (45" X 62").
    Child star Shirley Temple is all grown up at seventeen, and she has a big girl crush on Cary Grant, in the role of ne'er-do-well Richard Nugent. A superb comedy, Myrna Loy and Rudy Vallee round out the cast, with direction from Irving Reis. Heritage has sold very little large format paper for this film, making this French Grande by artist Bernard Lancy a terrific find. Professional restoration has addressed pinholes in the borders and background, small tears in the image area, fold wear, tape lifts along the vertical center fold, small chip in the left border, and a tiny nick in Grant's armor and Temple's hair. The poster now displays quite well, and it's unlikely collectors will see this format again anytime soon! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
