    Description

    His Girl Friday (Columbia, 1940). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Autographed One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    Based on the hit play The Front Page by Ben Hecht, this was the perfect vehicle for Cary Grant's comedic skills, and was one of the first films in which director Howard Hawks employed overlapping dialogue to make the scenes seem more realistic. This lovely one sheet features a terrific portrait of Cary Grant, which has been autographed by the star himself. Autographs from Grant are known to be very rare among collectors, making this poster a great opportunity for any fan. When the consignor, a well-known talent agent in Hollywood, asked for Grant's signature, the star returned, "Are people still watching these old movies of mine?" Professional restoration has addressed fold wear, pinholes, small tears, and a few chips in the borders and folds. Still visible are thin dust shadows in the edges. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
