DescriptionAll Quiet on the Western Front (Universal, R-1938). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
It's been almost a decade since we at Heritage have offered this striking reissue poster, featuring similar artwork to that which is found on the original one sheet. Winning Academy Awards for Best Picture and Director, this seminal war epic stars Lew Ayres as Paul Baumer, a young German student who heads to the front during WWI and experiences the horrors of trench warfare. 1938 was a timely reissue date for this iconic anti-war picture, with the first rumblings and rumors of World War II spreading through Europe. Prior to professional restoration, the poster showed slight fold wear and separations, pinholes, some tears, and a few chips at the folds and edges. There is partial airbrushing in the borders, making this poster a piece ready for display.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
