    Seed (Universal, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In this emotional tearjerker of a film, Bart Carter (John Boles) is an aspiring novelist married to Nancy (Lois Wilson), with whom he has five children. After a chance meeting with Mildred (Genevieve Tobin), an old flame who now happens to be the manager of the Paris division of the publisher for whom he works, Bart decides to divorce his wife and relocate to Europe. Mildred promises her support for his literary career, but Carter quickly discovers that she plans for him to crank out an endless stream of potboilers, simply to keep her living in the style to which she's become accustomed. Years later, when Bart, now a wealthy man, and Mildred return to the States, he is reunited with his now-grown children (including a very young Bette Davis in her second screen role), leading to a tearful confrontation between Mildred and Nancy, in which the current Mrs. Carter realizes that Bart's heart will always belong to his first family. This beautiful stone litho one sheet is one of three styles produced - this style and one other are offered in this auction for the first time by Heritage, with excellent artwork of Boles, Tobin, and Wilson. Expert professional restoration has addressed pinholes in the top corners, chips in the borders, two holes in the upper background, and one in between the logo and the credits. Additionally, approximately one inch of the white paper in the bottom border has been replaced. This striking piece of vintage poster art is ready to be proudly displayed as a valued part of your collection. From the Berwick Discovery. Fine on Linen.
