    The Story of Louis Pasteur (Warner Bros., 1935). Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Only offered once before at Heritage, this poster for the biopic The Story of Louis Pasteur features star Paul Muni in his Academy Award winning role. The film presents a fictionalized account of the life and work of chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur as he makes some of his most remarkable discoveries in the world of medicine. Muni's intense portrayal of Pasteur is well depicted in this wonderful one sheet. Backed on linen, the poster once displayed edge and fold wear, pinholes, moderate tears, creases, scuffs, and noticeable paper loss in the background as well as in the main image of Muni. Significant touchup has been applied to the poster, most notably in Muni's nose and beard, with additional touchup around his left eye and in the background area below the main image. The poster also had fold separations, some of which are still visible and are starting to slightly separate from the poster's backing. The borders have been airbrushed as as well, giving the poster a nice appearance.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
