    Description

    Great Guy (Grand National, 1936). One Sheet (28" X 41"), From the Warner Media Archive.
    James Cagney plays a tough guy in this picture, but a tough guy on the right side of the law, as he takes on crooked politicians who scheme to bilk the general public. The one sheet offered here is extremely striking, with excellent portraits of Cagney and Mae Clarke. After Cagney had left Warner Brothers over a dispute in his contract, he signed on with Grand National to do two films, of which Great Guy was the first. However, Grand National, a very low budget company was unprepared for the run on advertising and poster requests they received and so after publishing a stone litho version of this poster, "farmed" out the rest of the print run to a cheaper print house in Iowa. Slight touchup has been applied to the folds. Still visible issues include unrestored edge wear, pinholes in the corners, and tape stains in the corners. There is staining in the borders and on part of the orange background from the adhesive used during the backing process. The linen has nearly been trimmed to the top border. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
