DescriptionBig City (MGM, 1937). Folded, Fine+. Insert (14" X 36").
This programmer from MGM found Spencer Tracy as the head of a taxi business and Louise Rainer, his immigrant wife. Tracy's cab company is about to go to war with another cab company and the mob is favoring the other side. He gets a group of ex-prizefighters to join his gang and run the mob out of town. This great poster depicts some real legends of the fight world including, Jack Dempsey, Bull Montana, Jimmy McLarnin, Jim Thorpe, James J. Jeffries, and Gus Sonnenberg. Signs of use include edge and fold wear, significant fold separations, small tears, and a couple of minor chips. There are some soft surface scuffs, thin dust shadows, as well as unobtrusive stains and smudges. The poster has strips of cellophane and paper tape on the verso bracing fold separations, including a complete separation of the upper fold. Folded, Fine+.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
