    Description

    Quality Street (RKO, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 40.5").
    Katharine Hepburn absolutely shines in the role of Phoebe Throssel, a thirty-year-old spinster in Regency London, who poses as her own niece in order to capture the heart of a previous beau, Dr. Valentine Brown (Franchot Tone). One of Hepburn's earliest films, this was the second collaboration for Hepburn and director George Stevens, and they would soon work together again in the hit film, Woman of the Year. Sharp-eyed viewers can also spot an uncredited, eighteen-year-old Joan Fontaine in a minor role, appearing in only her third film. Prior to restoration, the poster once showed wear in the folds, minor tears, pinholes in the borders, and small chips at the edges. There was a horizontal scuff through Hepburn and Tone's faces that is still slightly visible, and the white backgrounds next to the title have been airbrushed to address writing bleedthrough. There is a slight trim in the lower border, but this does not affect any of the printed text. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
