    Description

    Be Big! (MGM, 1932). Folded, Very Fine. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5").
    Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy almost make it to Atlantic City for a weekend getaway with their wives, when they get a phone call telling them that a stag party is being held at their lodge that night in their honor. Hardy pretends to be sick and sends the wives on ahead. But when he puts on Laurel's boots and can't get them off, things begin to spiral out of control (as usual), resulting in plenty of the comedic chemistry that made the duo so famous through their careers. Not offered in over a decade, this stone litho Swedish poster is one of the only formats available for fans of these reigning funnymen, a rare chance for collectors indeed. Signs of handling include light edge or fold wear, slight fold separations, soft creases, and small tears. The poster also has a minute nick in the top border and subtle image ghosting in the interior. There are a couple of small pieces of archival tape on the verso bracing a fold separation and small tear. Folded, Very Fine.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
