    Description

    I Wanted Wings (Paramount, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
    With the sound of WWII fighter planes in the background, Veronica Lake and her peek-a-boo hairstyle captured the hearts of fly-boys everywhere (and regular guys too!). This one sheet, by artist McClelland Barclay, features the petite bombshell at the zenith of her career. She would go on to become one of the most popular starlets of the 1940s and team with Alan Ladd for a series of classic film noirs. The poster had chips off of the upper corners and restoration to all four corners. The fold lines have all been touched up with just a bit more to the center points. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
