    How Green Was My Valley (20th Century Fox, 1941). Three Sheet (42.25" X 78.5").
    Not offered by Heritage since 2006, this large format poster is an excellent find for fans of illustrious director John Ford. The sentimental story of a turn-of-the-century Welsh mining family, the film won the Best Picture Academy Award in 1941. This film remains one of the best remembered of Ford's long career, and its stellar cast is featured in beautiful stone litho: Walter Pidgeon, Maureen O'Hara, Roddy McDowell and Donald Crisp. The poster has benefited greatly from professional restoration, which corrected 1/2" of missing paper in the top border, and 1" missing in the right border. Touchup has corrected a tear and chip in the bottom cross fold, and small paper loss in the title area, along the folds and in the green background. Minor vertical scratches are noted in the title and light smudges in the faces of the cast. Note the "Keep 'Em Flying" World War II logo printed on the poster. Fine on Linen.
