    Dodsworth (United Artists, 1936). Italian 4 - Foglio (55" X 78").
    Based on a Sinclair Lewis novel, this is an insightful, surprisingly unsentimental look at the disintegrating marriage of a middle-aged couple. Walter Huston goes on a second honeymoon after selling his business at the behest of his wife. While in Europe, the wife begins to cavort with other male paramours and Huston begins to see her as the shallow individual she has become. Soon he meets Mary Astor, a strong, self confident widow and an attraction begins. This film was nominated for seven Academy Awards and remains one of the most emotionally compelling dramas of director William Wyler's long career. This is a beautiful pre-War Italian design by Anselmo Ballester and with its art deco lines is reminiscent of the U.S. one sheet, yet features only Huston as the titular character. Heritage has never sold this large format, glorious poster before and we doubt that more than a small handful of copies could have possibly survived and not in this poster's splendid condition! With only the most minor color touchup to fold lines this is an outstanding beauty! Very Fine+ on Linen.
