    Description

    Angels with Dirty Faces (Warner Brothers, 1938). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Director Michael Curtiz cast an impressive assortment of talented actors for his famous crime melodrama, James Cagney in his role of lifelong criminal Rocky being chief among them. Opening to much praise, Angels with Dirty Faces gained Cagney his first Academy Award nomination and shot him to even greater stardom as Warner Brothers' highest paid actor. Curtiz and screenwriter Rowland Brown also gained their own Academy Award nominations, rightfully so as this crime masterpiece has become one of the quintessential films of its genre. This poster has undergone restoration to address pinholes in the corners, small chips in the center and top crossfolds, and applied touchup to the borders, folds, and background. There is excellent restoration to several tears including mild tears in the borders and folds, a tear in Pat O'Brien's clerical collar, and tears in the left side of Cagney's face, one of which extends to the lower border and the others to the lower horizontal fold. There was a chip in the lower left corner that extends into the bottom of the copyright information. Despite these issues, this rare poster displays beautifully and would be a fantastic addition to any collection. Fine+ on Linen.
