    The Awful Truth (Columbia, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    Cary Grant and Irene Dunne star in director Leo McCarey's hilarious high society romp, considered by many to be one of the all-time greatest screwball comedies. With their marriage falling apart, Grant and Dunne engage in a bitter divorce trial that leads to outlandish antics, each trying to prevent the remarriage of the other. Professional restoration has addressed fold and edge wear, chipping in the borders and folds, and tearing in the interior. The background, borders, and parts of the image have been airbrushed, and the poster may have undergone some color enhancement. Very Good+ on Linen.

    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
