    Dynamite (MGM, 1929). Three Sheet (40.5" X 80").
    Cecil B. DeMille, the epic director of the silent era, created his first sound picture with this melodrama. In it, a socialite marries a man condemned to death row so she can inherit a fortune. But after the inmate is freed on a wrongful conviction, she suddenly finds herself trapped in a dangerous marriage. This poster captures the intensity of that marital union just as it's about to explode! Large format posters for this era are difficult to come by and that is certainly the case here with this early and pivotal sound film. There is a bit of airbrushing in the border and color touch to the fold lines. There was also a tear in the lower bottom border and a pair of tiny holes just above Charles Bickford's head. These have all been corrected through professional restoration and the poster absolutely dazzles. Very Fine- on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
