    Description

    Saratoga (MGM, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C. This racetrack comedy/drama stars Jean Harlow in her final screen performance (she died of acute nephritis during the filming) and co-stars Clark Gable, Lionel Barrymore and Walter Pidgeon. Harlow plays Carol Clayton, a lady who returns home to find that her father has lost the family's horse farm to Duke Bradley (Gable) because of gambling debts. Her wealthy stockbroker fiancée (Pidgeon) offers to help, but Carol insists that she will pay the debt in full when her champion horse wins at Saratoga. In the process, she falls in love with Duke and finds herself rooting for the competition in the win-all race. There were two style one sheets produced for this MGM star vehicle, and the other style was done in offset lithography with portraits of the two stars. This one sheet, on the other hand, was done in stone litho with art-deco lettering and more stylized portraits. The poster has some minor paper loss to the corners with pinholes and some minor crossfold wear. Minor chipping within the border. Fine+ on Linen.
