    Description

    In Old Kentucky (Fox, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. The very last film with famed comedian Will Rogers, released a scant three months after his death in an airplane crash near Point Barrow, Alaska, this is a story about two feudin' families, said feud to be resolved by a winner-take-all horse race. Star of stage, screen, and radio, and personal friend to presidents, publishers, and potentates, Rogers never lost the common touch, remaining a true "man of the people" even at the dizzying heights of his success. This beloved actor is exquisitely pictured on this beautiful stone litho one sheet, along with co-stars Dorothy Wilson, Charles Sellon (this was also his last picture), and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. The poster had some fold wear with crossfold separation and some small tears at the folds, pinholes in the corners, and light border chipping in the top left. Additionally, there is evidence of inpainting in the area of Wilson's face to repair some paper loss, and there are several tears near the "d" in "Old." After professional restoration to this highly attractive and desirable poster, these flaws are virtually unnoticeable, making this a perfect choice for any fan of Rogers' homespun charm. Fine+ on Linen.
