    Description

    Cavalcade (Fox, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Posters for this Best Picture of 1934 have always been known to be almost impossible to find and this is the first time we have offered this rarity in all of our years in poster auctions. This early Academy Award winning film may be seen as an early version of Downton Abby, as the story follows two British families (one set of aristocrats led by Oscar-nominee Diane Wynyard and Clive Brook and the other a set of servants led by Una O'Connor and Herbert Mundin) and their experiences from New Year's Eve 1899 to the start of 1933. Director Frank Lloyd (Oscar-winner) crafts a vastly interesting film that is technologically strong for the time period (the Titanic sequence in particular is something to be appreciated) and very intelligent from the start. The Academy's Margaret Herrick Library is known to own one other copy of this beautiful stone litho poster but we are unaware of any other copies known. The poster was mounted to a board but removed completely intact. Restoration has addressed staining to the borders as well into the teal field and the title "Cavalcade." Those areas have received airbrush treatment. The left and upper artwork have had little work other than fold touchup. This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the "missing pieces" of a complete Academy Award Best Picture winner run. Fine+ on Linen.
