DescriptionCrossroads (MGM, 1942). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
William Powell stars as a French diplomat caught up in a blackmail scheme when his alleged criminal past (which he can't remember!) catches up with him. Hedy Lamarr stars as his beautiful new wife, whom he tries to keep ignorant of the mounting evidence against him in this exciting mystery. This gorgeous D style one sheet has long been a favorite of poster collectors, and it's not hard to see why, with the dramatic color palette and sublime portraits of the lovely Lamarr and shadowed Powell. It benefitted from expert conservation with repairs to edge and fold wear, fold separations, enlarged pinholes, and a few tears. There were chips and surface paper loss in the borders and folds and a vertical tear in William Powell's image. The upper border had a moderate trim, and all of the borders, title, and upper credits have been airbrushed. The linen has been trimmed to the edge of the paper and there are a few very faint post-restoration smudges. Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
