    Foreign Correspondent (United Artists, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 40.75").
    Fourteen scriptwriters spent five years toiling over a movie adaptation of war correspondent Vincent Sheehan's Personal History before producer Walter Wanger brought the property to the screen. What resulted was very little of Sheehan and a lot of Alfred Hitchcock. This thriller tells the story of an American reporter who becomes involved in espionage in England during the onset of World War II. Joel McCrea, George Sanders, Laraine Day, Herbert Marshall, Albert Bassermann, and Robert Benchley star. Before restoration, there were pinholes in the corners of this poster, with several in the artwork. There was crossfold separations with minor chipping, minor paper loss in the vertical fold below the word "Artists," minor chipping in the border, and a small hole in the blue field next to the "p" in "Correspondent." All of these issues were artfully addressed and the poster displays beautifully! This wonderful poster is rarely offered for sale so act accordingly! Fine+ on Linen.
