Description

    Beau Geste (Paramount, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    Blazing colors ignite this one sheet with daring portraits of Gary Cooper, Ray Milland, and Robert Preston set among the blistering Saharan sands. A classic story of heroic sacrifice both on and off the battlefield by novelist P.C. Wren, the film is a nearly scene-for-scene remake of the popular silent 1929 rendition with Ronald Colman playing lead, and is now considered the defining cinematic portrayal of Wren's book. The very picture of bravery with a slew of Tuareg troops racing towards our heroes, this one sheet is a fantastic, vibrant image of these pre-Academy nomination stars. Touchup has been applied to the folds, minor chips in the upper and lower crossfolds, small tears in the bottom and left borders, a tear from the right border into the background, a vertical crease through the left side of the poster, and thin scratches near the left border. There are chips in three corners and small chips and slivers of paper loss in the borders. Very Fine- on Linen.
