    Description

    The Philadelphia Story (MGM, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
    Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn and James Stewart are all superbly showcased on this terrific piece, from the equally fantastic film. Prior to filming, this now classic story unfolded on a Broadway stage. Howard Hughes actually purchased the rights, and gave them to Hepburn as a gift. Both Hepburn and Stewart were nominated for Oscars for their performances, of which Stewart won. The film was also nominated for Best Picture and Best Director. Prior to restoration, this beautiful poster from the well respected film had edge wear with small chips in the right border, missing paper in the left corner, a sliver of paper loss in the bottom right corner, slight paper loss in the bottom border, and some evidence of tape lift on the verso along the folds. This beautiful style D poster is very much the preferred of the two styles and rarely comes to auction. Fine+ on Linen.
