    Description

    Dark Victory (Warner Brothers, 1939). Window Card (14" X 22").
    The marvelous Bette Davis is in Oscar worthy form as a haughty socialite struck with a debilitating illness in this moving drama. Davis, in the midst of an incredible career including roles in such films as Dangerous and Jezebel, could have quite easily won the Academy Award in 1939 if Gone With the Wind hadn't been released that same year. Just as in the the film, Davis steals the show on this outstanding window card, which includes a nod to her award winning performance in 1938's Jezebel. Restoration has addressed minor imperfections, with airbrushing applied to the imprint and borders as well as slightly to the image area. There is a small imperfection below the part in Davis' hair within her forehead and a small spot to her right that were touched up. There were pinholes in the left side, and a crease in the bottom border. The poster has been mounted on cardstock and now displays wonderfully. Fine/Very Fine on Cardstock.
