DescriptionStairway to Heaven (Universal International, 1946). Very Fine+. Title Lobby Card & Lobby Cards (3) (11" X 14"). British Title: A Matter of Life and Death.
Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger direct this other-worldly romantic drama which centers around Squadron Leader Peter Carter (David Niven) who should have died when his plane is shot down during WWII. His recovery is an accident from Heaven and to stay alive he must argue his case in a celestial trial. Kim Hunter stars as the woman who loves Carter so much she is willing to take his place on the other side, and Raymond Massey is wonderful as the Heavenly prosecutor. This has become one of the most beloved British films of all time, also known as A Matter of Life and Death. The cards are all in excellent condition showing only light edge wear, faint creases, a few light smudges, and a couple of very minor tears. Very Fine+.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
