    Description

    Riptide (MGM, 1934). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C.
    One of MGM's biggest leading ladies during the 1920s and 1930s, Norma Shearer earned herself the reputation of a "free soul" on screen during Hollywood's pre-Code era, a persona that the studio hastily reigned in after the enforcement of the Production Code. This 1934 role was one of the last of Shearer's performances as a "liberated woman," but curtailed some of the plot's most scandal-driven parts with mistaken circumstances and a literally last minute marital reconciliation. This is the first one sheet ever offered by Heritage for this film, and the style C stone litho image is a breathtaking depiction of Shearer's beauty. In pristine condition for its age, there are only pinholes in the corners, a couple of smudges in the right corners, and light offset in the lower half of the poster. There are soft vertical folds from when the poster was originally distributed. Folded, Very Fine+.
