    Description

    Wings and the Woman (RKO, 1942). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Anna Neagle stars in this British film about aviator Amy Johnson, who broke numerous records with her solo flights around the world. Like Amelia Earhart, she captured the public's interest during the 1930s. Johnson died in 1941, while flying for the Air Transport Auxiliary. She ditched her plane in the sea near a British ship, but couldn't be recovered. She had been earlier quoted as saying, "I know where I shall finish up -- in the drink. A few headlines in the newspapers and then they forget you." This film is evidence that she will be remembered. This one sheet has edge wear and tears with a corner chip that has been reattached with archival tape, fold wear with separations that have small loss of paper, and some wrinkling. Nice artwork of Neagle. Fine+.
