Description

    Gunga Din (RKO, 1939). Insert (14" X 36"). One of Rudyard Kipling's most famous poems, Gunga Din is the story of a heroic waterboy in 19th century India who is killed saving the life of a British officer during a Thuggee raid. Particularly well known is the last line, "You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din." Based on Kipling's landmark verse, but expanding the plot considerably, the classic film starred Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, and, in the title role, Sam Jaffee. This exquisite insert had pinholes in the corners, a tear in the top border, missing paper in the top left corner, a chip in the right border, and bends in the bottom corners. Additionally, the borders have been airbrushed and the fold lines have been retouched. Expertly applied professional restoration has corrected all these flaws, returning the poster to a glorious, like-new appearance. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
