    Description

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (RKO, 1937). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A. We knew if we were patient enough, this poster would surface eventually. Our patience has been rewarded. Here is the incredibly elusive Style A half sheet, one of the most desirable posters on the title, with artwork by legendary children's book/animator Gustaf Tenggren. It is Tenggren's work (out of some 570 artists that worked on the film!!) that distinguishes many of the film's finest moments, as seen here in this simply splendid illustration of Snow White fleeing the murderous huntsman. With a 19th Century style that draws directly from one of the most beloved of illustrators, Arthur Rackham, the eerily romanticized trees almost seem to move on the poster. This is an unrestored, rolled poster. Posters of this size from the 1930s without folds are near impossible to find, particularly on a title as popular as this. There are numerous tiny pinholes throughout the borders and field that are barely noticeable unless held to a light table. The top left edge has minor wrinkles, there is a small tear in the center right border, and there is light border soil and bottom border smudges. This poster would display nicely as is, but It would take only minor restoration to bring this beauty to near perfect condition. Rolled, Fine-.
