DescriptionAt the Circus (MGM, 1948). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (45" X 62.75").
Groucho Marx, tries to woo Margaret Dumont, as usual, into accepting her nephew's circus business. Nobody in the history of the cinema could match the zany antics of Groucho and his brothers, and material for their films is some of the most sought after in the hobby. It's certainly tough to beat Groucho's rousing rendition of "Lydia the Tattooed Lady." This is a wonderful Italian post-war release poster picturing the Marx Brothers in one of their funniest MGM hits. Still considered a 2 - Fogli this poster is slightly larger than usual for the format and comes in two panels. Touchup has been applied to fold wear, pinholes, and small tears. There were some chips in the top border and background, as well as a diagonal tear from the left border into some of the upper text. Some of these issues are still apparent after restoration. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
