Description

    The Match King (Warner Brothers-First National, 1932) One Sheet (27" X 41"). Warren William turned in one of his finest performances as the Match King, a man who would do anything to succeed and give his Swedish company a monopoly on the match market. The same year this film was made, the real life match king Ivar Kreuger, committed suicide. Quite obviously this picture was loosely based on Kreuger's career. The one sheet is gorgeous as was the case with many of the early one sheets to emerge from Warners. The condition of this poster is gorgeous as well. There are some minor repairs to some pinholes and tiny chips out of the border. There was a slightly larger chip (about the size of a quarter) out of the edge by the lower left horizontal fold. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
