Description

    A Chump at Oxford (ICI, Late 1940s). First Post-War Release Italian Foglio (27.5" X 39").
    As a reward for capturing a bank robber, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy get scholarships to Oxford, but are met with resentment by other students. The comic duo were still doing some of their finest work at this time but it was all to end when their partnership with Hal Roach ran out. Shortly thereafter they would be working for Fox Studios cranking out "scripted" product that was hardly their own. This wonderful film catches them at the finish of one of the most creative comic runs in the history of cinema. Offered for the first time at Heritage, restoration has addressed fold wear, chips and tears in the borders and folds, and some pinholes. There are various tears in the interior, a couple of which are in the characters. There are unaddressed pinholes, toning, and staining in the borders and interior that is still apparent. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
