    Description

    Bringing Up Baby (RKO, 1938). Autographed Midget Window Card (8" X 14").
    Katharine Hepburn is non-stop trouble for Cary Grant in this top screwball comedy, directed by Howard Hawks. Initially not a box office success, this has become one of the most beloved comedies of the era. The top imprint area of this card has been replaced through professional restoration, there was one pinhole, and the back has been airbrushed. This rare and fabulous midget window card is signed "Cary Grant," and features a delightful rendering of the stars and their baby leopard. From the collection of Artie Kern, A/V man to Oscar winning songwriter Sammy Cahn for many years, who was also personal lyricist to Frank Sinatra for almost fifty years. Kern was Memorabilia Consultant to the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in New York City, and many of his items were on display there from 1980-1985 until its closing in 1985. Sammy Cahn helped Kern obtain the autographs, as he was president of the hall for over 17 years; almost all of the signatures were from his personal friends, a must, as Cary Grant's signature was almost impossible to obtain unless you knew him! This is a ultra-rare opportunity to obtain that rare signature on a very rare poster! Fine.
