DescriptionBlock-Heads (MGM, 1938). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
This 1938 Laurel and Hardy comedy stars the duo as two former doughboys that served together is WWI. Unfortunately, Stan doesn't know the war is over and is still guarding the trenches in France. When found and brought home twenty years after the war's end, Oliver takes pity on his old chum and takes him home for a visit. That's where the laughs really begin. Paper from the original release is scarce, and this is the first original one sheet for the film we have ever had the pleasure to offer. This stone litho, style D poster features fantastic caricatures of the two funnymen and has touchup to the folds, pinholes, and small tears in the borders and background. There was also a tear from the left border into the background. Some of these issue are still slightly visible, and there are pinholes have not been addressed, some of which are slightly torn. The poster has unaddressed stains in the borders and background, and the linen has been trimmed to the borders, but not into the poster itself. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
