    Description

    The Corn is Green (Warner Brothers, 1945). Autographed One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Bette Davis plays courageous schoolteacher Lilly Moffat, who sets up a school to provide basic education to villagers in a Welsh mining town, against the objections of both her family and the local authorities. This charming one sheet is signed "Bette Davis" and "Irving Rapper" (the director of the film). It shows some fold wear, some crossfold separation, light fold line splitting at the edges, pinholes in the corners, and light edge wear, but presents very nicely. It's an absolute "must have" for any fan of this great actress. From the collection of Artie Kern, A/V man to Oscar winning songwriter Sammy Cahn for many years, who was also personal lyricist to Frank Sinatra for almost fifty years. Kern was also Memorabilia Consultant to the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in New York City and many of his items were on display there from 1980-1985, until its closing. Sammy Cahn helped Mr. Kern obtain the autographs as he was president of the hall for over 17 years and almost all of the signatures were from his personal friends. Fine-.
