    Description

    It's a Wonderful Life (RKO, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    James Stewart is the perfect Everyman in this, Frank Capra's bittersweet classic about the life a man leads and the consequences of his actions. Small-town family man George Bailey has a beautiful wife (Donna Reed) and a house full of children, but can't seem to catch a break in life. When the evil Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore) gets George in an impossible financial situation, he contemplates suicide. Only the intervention of an angel (Henry Travers) saves him from this lonely fate. Offered here is the classic one sheet, featuring Stewart and Reed in a moment of elation. The poster had pinholes in the borders, slight overall fading, fold wear with crossfold separations, and a small chip in the lower border, all of which has been addressed with professional restoration. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
