    Description

    Bringing Up Baby (RKO, 1938). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    This classic screwball comedy had a pace faster than a Chinese fire-drill. It heads the list of the best of the true screwball outings of the the 1930s, with enough absurdity and zaniness for several films. You just marvel at how Howard Hawks kept everything in the air until it was time for everything to come down. This wonderful title card features a great profile shot of Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant looking down at "Baby." The caricature below by one of RKO's poster artists is signed in the plate, and is art that is featured on almost all the posters on the title, even the 40" X 60." You'll seldom see a title card from this title in this condition. There has been careful restoration for a small chip in the top left corner, and pinholes in the corners and the top center border. The color is terrific and the card has a fresh appearance. Fine/Very Fine.
