    Description

    Dynamite (MGM, 1929). One Sheet (27" X 41") Sound Style.
    In his first all-talking picture, Cecil B. DeMille directs a very modern melodrama about a spoiled rich girl, Kay Johnson in her film debut, and the men, Conrad Nagel and Charles Bickford, who fight for her. DeMille knew how to pack a lot of drama into one film, and this one has it all, helping to make it a stunner of a poster. The film was released both as a silent, to accommodate theaters that did not have the latest sound technology, and as a "talkie"-- this copy is from the sound release. The film won an Academy nomination for Art Direction, and Joel McCrea has a small role with both Carole Lombard and Randolph Scott appearing as extras. A gorgeous stone litho, the poster has been professionally restored to address a small tack hole in the lower right, two minor ones in the yellow field, a small tack hole in Johnson's neck, and pinholes in the corners. None of these issues are visible anymore and this beauty displays extremely well. Very Fine- on Linen.
