    Description

    Hell Divers (MGM, 1932). Three-Quarter Sheet (27" X 30.5").
    In this pre-Code classic, Wallace Beery and Clark Gable - who officially became a star with this picture - play a pair of Navy pilots who engage in a serious rivalry both on duty and off. What really makes this beautiful stone litho poster a unique find, however, is its size. This is an ultra-rare three quarter sheet, a size produced for a very brief period of time in the early 1930s for posting on billboards. These posters rarely surface; in ten years of poster auctions, we have never seen another, certainly making them the rarest style of poster ever produced. This superb example had pinholes in the corners, a chip in the left border, slight crossfold separation, some fold wear, a small tear in the top right corner, and an area of missing paper with a tear at the bottom of the image. Expert professional restoration, however, has returned this great poster to a stunning appearance. Fine- on Linen.
