    Description

    Wings and the Woman (RKO, 1942). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Anna Neagle stars in this British film about aviator Amy Johnson who broke numerous records with her solo flights around the world. Like Amelia Earhart, she captured the public's interest during the 1930s. Johnson died in 1941, while flying for the Air Transport Auxiliary. She ditched her plane in the sea near a British ship, but couldn't be recovered. She had been earlier quoted as saying, "I know where I shall finish up -- in the drink. A few headlines in the newspapers and then they forget you." This film is evidence that she will be remembered. This one sheet has edge wear and tears, fold wear with separations, pinholes with tears, light toning and soiling, and some tape on the back over separations and holes. Very Good/Fine.
