    Description

    Foreign Correspondent (United Artists, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41"). 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 mostly 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. We have never offered this colorful and scarce one sheet in one of our auctions before. This copy has been restored on linen but had pinholes in the corners, and several within the artwork as well as some fold wear with separations. There is minor chipping at the crossfolds and there is some minor paper loss in the vertical fold below the word "Artists." There is some minor chipping in the border and a small hole in the blue field next to the "P" in "Correspondent." All of these issues were beautifully addressed when restored. The poster displays beautifully! Fine+ on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
