DescriptionIt's a Wonderful Life (Allied Artists, R-Mid 1950s). Very Fine- on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39" X 55.5"). Manfredo Acerbo Artwork.
James Stewart is the perfect Everyman in Frank Capra's bittersweet classic about the life a man leads, and the consequences of his actions. Despite having a beautiful wife (Donna Reed) and a house full of children, small-town family man George Bailey (Stewart) can't seem to catch a break in life. A classic now, the film was initially a box office disaster, taking in only $3.3 million against a cost of $3.7 million. It wasn't until the picture became a regular TV staple during the holidays that it finally earned its much deserved recognition and admiration. This Heritage first has received professional touchup to fold wear, enlarged pinholes, small tears, and a few minor chips in the folds. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
