    Description

    It's a Wonderful Life (RKO, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41"). This film is regarded as a classic and is a staple of Christmas TV around the world, although it failed to return a profit on release and was considered a financial flop. James Stewart stars as George Bailey, a man whose attempted suicide on Christmas Eve gains the attention of a guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers) who is sent to help him in his hour of need. Today the AFI considers the film to be one of the top motion pictures ever made. This poster has had the borders trimmed by as much as 3/4" on the top border and as little as 1/4" on the bottom border. There was a chip out of the right border which extended into the "e" in "Life" of the title. There was wear in the lower fold and some paper loss in the "It's a" of the title. All of the issues have been professionally restored and much of the white background field has been airbrushed. The poster now looks great and would display beautifully. Very Good on Linen.
