    Description

    Bus Stop (20th Century Fox, 1956). Poster (30" X 40") Style Y.
    By 1956, Marilyn Monroe had become a star with successes in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, and especially The Seven Year Itch, putting her in a much stronger negotiating position with her studio. This film marks the first made by Marilyn Monroe Productions, along with a salary that finally reflected her worth and the presence of noted dramatic coach Paula Strasberg, who would be on the set of all subsequent Monroe pictures. Her hard work paid off and Monroe received critical praise for her performance as down-and-out saloon singer Chérie and her rendition of "That Old Black Magic" by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer. Only offered once before at Heritage over fifteen years ago, this professionally restored piece once showed pinholes, creasing, and tears into the interior with small chips. The poster also had a horizontal tear through Monroe's face and a few chips in her hair. There is a mostly torn crease across the the poster that has been partially restored, but is still visible. The majority of the poster's borders are airbrushed, and there has been color enhancement to the title, credits, Don Murray's face and hands, and to Monroe's image. Very Good on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
