Description

    Strange Cargo (MGM, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D. From the collection of William E. Rea.
    Making a striking couple, Clark Gable and Joan Crawford share a moment on this rare style D one sheet from Strange Cargo. The film remains easily one of Gable's most complex and thought provoking films. He stars as a convict who leads a group of escapees from a French penal colony on a perilous trek towards freedom. Along for the ride are girlfriend Crawford and holy man Ian Hunter. This would be Crawford's eighth and final teaming with Gable. Restoration has addressed pinholes in the corners, a small hole by Gable's head, and an extra horizontal crease in the upper section. Touchup has been applied to the folds. From the collection of William E. Rea. Very Fine- on Linen.
