    Description

    Gone with the Wind (MGM, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style DP.
    Margaret Mitchell's masterpiece was turned into one of the most anticipated and most beloved of Hollywood classics by legendary producer David O. Selznick. This stunning image from Scarlett and Rhett's dance scene was made by the noted illustrator Armando Seguso, who created most of the artwork for the film's posters. Shortly after the film's initial 1939 roadshow release, it went into a wider release in early 1940 and, to allay the public's fears that the film would be abridged, MGM announced that the only thing that had been cut were the ticket prices. Some of the first one sheets printed were shipped out with paper snipes attached to them announcing "Full Length, Nothing Cut," while others, such as this one, were printed with the information on the poster. This is the very rare style DP and is one of the more desirable of the four styles. The poster had corner pinholes, fold wear with chips in the bottom right corner and left border, and a tear in the top center section of the image, all of which has been addressed with professional restoration, including touch-ups to the folds and airbrushed borders. Fine on Linen.
