    Description

    Love Before Breakfast (Universal, 1936). Very Fine- on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    Nobody did screwball comedy better than Carole Lombard In this classic film. Lombard, as Park Avenue beauty Kay Colby, is courted by both oil company owner Scott Miller (Preston Foster) and her fiancé, who is also Miller's employee, Bill Wadsworth (Cesar Romero). Miller tries to interfere with the couple by having Wadsworth transferred to Japan, but love conquers all in the end. This half sheet, a desirable item for sure, features one of the best images of Lombard ever put on a poster. Professional restoration has airbrushed the borders and addressed pinholes in the borders,very minor surface scuffs, and a horizontal fold across the lower background. Very Fine- on Paper.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
