    Gone With the Wind (MGM, 1939). Oilette Set (4) (18" X 19"). MGM first released "Gone With The Wind" in a road show format in 1939, playing the film in just a few theaters across the country. Among the promotional material used at the theaters during this early release were these wonderful "oilettes." Each "oilette" resembles an oil painting of the various stars, done by famed artist Armando Seguso, complete with a simulated frame. The four stars featured here are Clark Gable, Vivian Leigh, Leslie Howard and Olivia DeHavilland. These pieces are exceedingly rare and to our knowledge, only one other set (that was nowhere near the condition of this set) has ever been offered for sale. This set is pristine and appears to have never been used. Also accompanying this set is an original program which features colored photos of the various "oilettes" and the original cardboard mailer the set was originally shipped in. These are guaranteed the original 1939 set and not the similar set issued with the re-release in 1968. Near Mint in original mailing box.
