    The Lady Eve (Paramount, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Romance meets screwball in this Preston Sturges comedy, telling the tale of a beautiful con artist and her father and the poor, but rich, dope she intends to fleece. Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda, both recently nominated for Academy Awards in leading roles, prove to be just as skilled at the comedic as they are the dramatic, embracing the rapid-fire stream of jokes and gags with an effusive enthusiasm that spills straight from the screen into the audience. Based on the short story Two Bad Hats, Sturges' adaptation struck just the right balance between quick witted satire and perfectly timed slapstick, resulting in an Oscar nomination in Best Writing: Original Story for the author. One sheets for this title are very scarce, and this particular copy has been conserved to correct some fold wear, pinholes, small tears, and a few chips in the borders. There was some paper loss at the top border into the upper background, and a slight tear from the top border into Henry Fonda's credit. The result of these skilled efforts has left us with a beautiful and brilliant poster. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Estimate: $15,000 - $30,000.
