    Description

    Tugboat Annie (MGM, 1933). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C. From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    Only offered once before fifteen years ago, this bright poster is the only known copy of the film's style C one sheet. It features great stone litho illustrations of stars Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery in their roles as a dysfunctional couple and owners of a tugboat, based off of the comic strips of Norman Reilly Raine. While Dressler and Beery provide the comedy, Robert Young and Maureen O'Sullivan provide the melodrama as the film's prerequisite young lovers. A rare chance for collectors, this poster shows signs of usage including fold separation, pinholes, and a few smudges and stains. Also apparent are small tears, in addition to a tear in the upper right border, as well as minute chips, including two near the title and upper fold which have received light touchup. There are several minor pieces of paper tape and a strip of cellophane tape on the verso that do not show through on the front.
