    Description

    20,000 Years in Sing Sing (First National, 1932). Very Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    Based upon a nonfiction book by the former warden of Sing Sing, Lewis Lawes, this film enjoyed direction by Michael Curtiz, noted for Casablanca, The Sea Hawk, Mildred Pierce, and starred both Spencer Tracy and Bette Davis in very early roles. The posters from this film have always been scarce. This rare stone litho one sheet is fairly atypical of the period, featuring mainly the very Deco title graphic against a stylized prison wall. Light touchup has been applied to the folds and the borders have been airbrushed.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
