    Description

    My Favorite Wife (RKO, 1947). First Post-War Release Horizontal French Double Grande (63" X 90.75") Pierre Segogne Artwork.
    Cary Grant and Irene Dunne are at the height of their comedic powers in this screwball film from director Garson Kanin and producer Leo McCarey. Very loosely based on the 1864 tragic poem Enoch Arden by Alfred Lord Tennyson, the story switches the male sailor of the poem to Dunne's rescued castaway, who returns after seven years only to find that her husband (Grant) has remarried. Tennyson's story got another comedic remake in 1963 as Move Over, Darling with Doris Day and James Garner, but this remains the favorite of the two adaptations with Grant and Dunne's unbeatable performances. Energetic artwork by Pierre Segogne dominates this first time offer from Heritage, which has been touched up at the folds, a few mild tears in the borders and image, and a tear from the right border to the vertical fold in Irene Dunn's image. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
