    Description

    The Country Girl (Paramount, 1955). Italian Photobustas (2) (19.25" X 26.5"). Drama.
    Stage director Bernie Dodd (William Holden) is not so sure that Georgie Elgin (Grace Kelly) isn't the real reason that her husband Frank (Bing Crosby) has become an alcoholic, washed-up actor. Dodd is willing to offer Frank a role, but only if he can stay sober--not an easy task. Kelly won her only Oscar for the role of the mousy Georgie, beating out Judy Garland in A Star is Born by a reported six votes. The poster has fold wear, pinholes in the outer background, minor surface scuffs, and small stains in the borders. There are tax stamps by Grace Kelly in the portrait photobusta as well as a tear in her left shoulder and a pinhole, and both photobustas have cellophane tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
