    Description

    The Wizard of Oz (MGM, 1939). Fair/Good on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
    Though The Wizard of Oz was one of the most popular movies of its day, original release posters for the title are in woefully short supply, and one sheets are among the scarcest and most highly sought formats. In fact, Heritage has had the privilege of offering only one other Style D one sheet for the picture, which has a great layout with whimsical artwork and photographic portraits of the stars. Truly a magical film that has endured through the ages in a way few others manage, collectors should jump at the chance to own such a fantastic acquisition. Beautifully conserved, this exceptionally rare one sheet once displayed fold wear and separation, as well as a couple of small tears. Prior to its restoration, the poster was trimmed by approximately 8" along the left side into the interior, and it was also slightly trimmed along the top, bottom, and right borders. This paper loss has all been skillfully replaced, and the one sheet has received airbrushing in the borders, white background, yellow and blue fields, and in parts of the Lion and the Tin Man. After these corrections, the one sheet is more than ready to be displayed as a highlight piece in any collection.
