    Description

    Cavalcade (20th Century Fox, R- Late 1930s). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. International One Sheet (27" X 41").
    A sweeping epic with an all-British cast, Cavalcade gained instant critical acclaim the moment it first hit theaters and won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Frank Lloyd), and Best Art Direction. Diana Wynyard's elegant performance also earned herself a nomination for Best Actress, the first British actress to ever do so. The film, adapted from the Noel Coward play, follows a family from New Year's Eve 1899 to New Year's Eve 1932, spanning wars, the death of Queen Victoria, disasters, and more. With an image based off of the original one sheet, this is a rare reissue poster from this award-winning drama, for which there is very little paper available from any of its releases. This poster has benefitted from professional restoration to slight edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, some tears, and small chips. There is an unaddressed Canadian ink censorship stamp in the image area in the upper right area that has partially transferred to the bottom right corner. Regardless, this poster is a great piece any classic collector would be proud to own.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
