    Description

    The Bowery (United Artists, 1933). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Wallace Beery and George Raft star as two buddies living at the turn of the century who compete for everything in their Bowery neighborhood, including the love of Fay Wray. Beery is a saloon owner who is raising an orphan, Jackie Cooper, and dares pal Raft to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge to prove his love to Wray. In a small bit part, Lucille Ball can be seen making her film debut. Filled with the Brooklyn Bridge and sweet portraits of Beery, Raft, Cooper and Wray, this sunshine-hued half sheet is a Heritage first. The piece has been paperbacked, and touch-up applied to pinholes, tears in the borders, and fold wear. Fine on Paper.
