    Description

    Bringing Up Baby (RKO, 1938). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). "Bringing Up Baby" enjoys frequently revived popularity today due to its breakneck pace, superb comic timing, humorous swipes at sex roles, and partnering of Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. But when the film was initially released in 1938, it met harsh criticism and indifferent audiences. As time went on, however, the movie gained more and more attention and is now revered as an almost surreally sophisticated classic widely noted for being decades ahead of its time. This gorgeous title card had a two and a half inch tear from the upper left border into Hepburn's hair. There is a broken upper right corner within the border as well as a crimped lower portion of the bottom border which has been repaired. These issue have been expertly addressed and the card now appears near mint. Fine+.
