    Bedtime for Bonzo (Universal International, 1951). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    When Ronald Reagan was running for President, talk show host Johnny Carson had no end of fun bringing up this chimpanzee-comedy from Reagan's Hollywood years (it helped that the film was directed by Carson's producer, Freddie DeCordova). Slight touchup has been applied to a chip at the center crossfold and the horizontal fold in Bonzo's face. Unaddressed issues include fold wear, moderate tears, pinholes, and small chips. There are a couple of minor bits of paper loss in the upper background. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
