    Slave Ship (20th Century Fox, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    One sheets from this film adapted from a story by William Faulkner are few and far between, making this lot an excellent find for the right collector. This adventure drama tells the story of Captain Jim Lovett, a skipper of a slave trading vessel who comes to a moral crossroads and wants to venture into something more respectable. The crew has grown accustom to this lucrative line of work however, and a mutiny soon arises, complete with swashbuckling sword fights and high sea adventure. The talented cast included; Lon Chaney, Jr., Wallace Beery, Warner Baxter and Mickey Rooney. Incredible colors adorn this sensational stone litho poster, with linen trimmed to the border. Restoration has addressed pinholes in the corners, a small tear in the top right corner, left border, and two in the top left corner in the image area, fold wear, cross fold separation, a light scuff in the shirt, and a small chip in the top background. Fine+ on Linen.
