DescriptionWee Willie Winkie (20th Century Fox, 1937). Six Sheet (81" X 81").
Leave it to director John Ford to place Shirley Temple in the middle of an uprising during the British occupation of India. Ford was known as a "man's man" director and would use Victor McLaglen as his hero in many a film. In this outing, he cast the lovable child star Temple as a little girl who wants to stop the uprising and save the British Empire. This poster packs a serious punch of color and action as only 20th Century Fox could do it -- all with an impressive stone litho. The film remains one of Temple's best from the peak of her years as a child star. There are minor chips and tears in the borders. There are crimps and minor cracks within the image area and there has been color touchup on the fold lines. There are tears in Temple's credit and there is a hole in the linen through Kipling's credit. The poster is mounted on an old linen and although the colors are quite bright, there is some discoloration in the white area of the title. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
