    Description

    Jezebel (Warner Bros., 1938). Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (26.75" X 40").
    Boasting one of the most beautiful illustrations of Bette Davis to appear on a poster, this searing one sheet shows Davis in the role that won her a second Oscar as Best Actress. Henry Fonda and George Brent likewise make excellent performances, as does Fay Bainter, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Only offered a scant few times at Heritage, this gorgeous one sheet has received professional conservation to address such issues as fold wear and separation, pinholes, and some tears, including a tear from the right border into Davis' credit. Also addressed were small chips in the borders, background, and one in Davis' forehead. There are a few thin cracks in the restoration. The top, bottom, and right borders have each been slightly trimmed, but this does not affect the printed area. To complete the restoration and make the poster a display-ready piece, the borders and red field have been airbrushed.


    Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
