    Description

    The Plough and the Stars (RKO, 1936). Folded, Very Fine-. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    Making its premiere appearance for auction at Heritage, this poster was at one point on display at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Grand Lobby Gallery. John Ford directed this Easter Rebellion film based on Sean O'Casey's play. The story follows a married couple (Barbara Stanwyck and Preston Foster) caught in the middle of the Irish Revolution in the streets of Dublin. The "Plough and the Stars" refers to the Irish flag, and plays a very symbolic part in the film. John Ford used many of Dublin's Abbey Theatres actors in making the film, most notably Barry Fitzgerald. There are such indications of handling as minor fold separations, slight creases, as well as pinholes, a few of which have very small rust stains. Also apparent are unobtrusive stains and faint toning. There are a few strips of mending tissue on the verso at the top edge.


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