    Description

    She (RKO, 1935). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    Making its premiere appearance for auction at Heritage, and the only known copy, this exceptional one sheet is from producer Merian C. Cooper's stunning adaptation of H. Rider Haggard's popular adventure novel, She, fresh from his triumph on 1933's King Kong. The story of a beautiful woman who rules a mysterious underground civilization, this was a lavish, spare-no-expense production starring Randolph Scott, Helen Gahagan, Helen Mack, Nigel Bruce, "and a cast of thousands." An expensive film to make and a massive box office disappointment, the film was considered lost for many years, until a print was discovered in the garage of silent film comedian Buster Keaton. It has since been restored for public viewing, and, upon reevaluation, proves to be a dynamic and exciting film, a spectacular picture well worthy of its impressive cinematic lineage. Professional restoration has addressed some fold wear and separation, pinholes, creases, and small tears. Also addressed are minor chips, and the borders and title have been airbrushed. Still visible are a few faint smudges. In keeping with the elaborate production values of the picture itself, the paper designed to promote the movie is extremely attractive as well.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
