    If I Had a Million (Paramount, 1932). Six Sheet (81" X 81"). What if someone, just out of the blue, suddenly gave you a million dollars? That's exactly what happens in this all-star movie, as dying tycoon John Glidden (Richard Bennett) decides that his relatives are worthless and instead divides his fortune among eight individuals chosen at random from the city phone book. Among the recipients are a known forger (George Raft) who can't convince anyone that the check is real and ends up burning it, a clerk (Charles Laughton) who can finally tell his boss what he really thinks of him, a hooker (Wynne Gibson) who can finally afford to sleep alone, a motoring couple (W. C. Fields and Alison Skipworth) who take revenge on the "road hogs" that wrecked their car, a trio of Marines (Gary Cooper, Roscoe Karns, and Jack Oakie) who don't' believe the check is real and sign it over to the owner of a lunch counter, and a salesman in a china store (Charles Ruggles) who takes the opportunity to smash everything in sight. The only truly deserving recipient is elderly May Robson, who uses her money to improve conditions in the nursing home to which she is confined. This charming and delightful film is represented here by a highly desirable stone litho six sheet. It has pinholes, crossfold separations and light fold wear, and a bend in the top right corner. Aside from these minor flaws, the poster is in fabulous condition. Very Fine+.
