Description

    In Old Chicago (20th Century Fox, 1937). Three Sheet (41" X 78.5") Style A, Frederic C. Madan Artwork.
    Nominated for Best Picture and said to have been one of the most expensive films produced by Hollywood at the time, this spectacular musical drama stars Tyrone Power, Alice Faye and Don Ameche as the fabled O'Learys of Chicago. A retelling of that tragic night when the infamous O'Leary cow allegedly started the fire that would consume much of Chicago, this picture would also see Alice Brady win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Never sold before at Heritage, this stone litho beauty possesses stunning artwork by Frederic C. Madan that showcases an array of rich colors. It looks wonderful after professional restoration to pinholes, a sliver of paper loss in the lower right corner, small chips in the borders, and touchup to the folds with some crossfold paper loss. Still visible are a few pinholes, small paper lifts in Alice Faye's hat, and some surface scratches in the lower background. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
