    Description

    Alexander Hamilton (Warner Brothers, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
    How timely is this gorgeous stone litho one sheet, as the renewed interest in our Founding Father has grown with the production of the smash Broadway musical hit by Lin-Manuel Miranda and the recent release of the biography by Ron Chernow? The production has seen unprecedented advance box office sales, another indication that interest remains high in this great American statesman. The play, Hamilton upon which this film is based, opened on Broadway in New York in September 1917, closing that November after eighty performances. The opening night cast included British actor George Arliss as Alexander Hamilton, Florence Arliss (Arliss' real life wife) as Elizabeth Hamilton, and the famous Jeanne Eagels as Mrs. Reynolds. Arliss reprised his role as Hamilton in this 1931 film that concentrates primarily on his attempts to pass the "Assumption Bill" while a member of George Washington's cabinet. Doris Kenyon co-stars, and is seen with Arliss on this rare one sheet. Minor signs of wear include pinholes in the borders and crossfold separation. Folded, Very Fine.
