    Description

    Only Angels Have Wings (Columbia, 1939). Autographed Window Card (14" X 22").
    Howard Hawks put together a legendary cast for this aviation drama with Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, Thomas Mitchell, and a talented newcomer, Rita Hayworth. The compelling story centers around a mail route in the Andes Mountains run by fatalistic flyer Grant. With dramatic aviation sequences, terrific dialogue, and sparks from Hayworth, this is a genuine classic. The card has corner bumps, edge wear, light toning, and a small tear with an abrasion at the top. This stunning card is signed boldly in dark fountain pen by Cary Grant. From the collection of Artie Kern, A/V man to Oscar winning songwriter Sammy Cahn for many years, who was also personal lyricist to Frank Sinatra for almost fifty years. Kern was also Memorabilia Consultant to the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in New York City and many of his items were on display there from 1980-1985, until its closing. Sammy Cahn helped Mr. Kern obtain the autographs as he was president of the hall for over 17 years and almost all of the signatures were from his personal friends. As many know, Cary Grant's signature was almost impossible to obtain unless you knew him or someone who knew him. Fine/Very Fine.
