    Letter of Introduction (Universal, 1938). Poster (40" X 60"). Adolphe Menjou stars as a Broadway actor trying to make a comeback, but a visit from his estranged daughter (Andrea Leeds), herself a struggling actress, complicate his plans. Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy offer some comic relief, making the film a reunion for the four stars of "Goldwyn Follies," and oddly enough, it's the comedy duo who set up the tear-jerking finale by bringing Menjou and Leeds back together after several twists of the plot. Unavailable for many years, the film re-emerged in 1975, a reconciliation of sorts with estranged fans, and this rare poster from the original release should be greeted with equally open arms. The poster has soiling in the borders as well as several tears on the left and right edges; the upper-right corner has paper loss, and tape repair had been attempted in the 3"x 5" area below it, though wear is still apparent. All that said, almost nothing -- save for light wrinkling -- infringes upon the bright image. This is one of the very rare Photo Gelatin 40" X 60"! These just do not show up. Very Good/Fine.
