Description

    It's a Wonderful Life (RKO, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    James Stewart is the perfect Everyman in Frank Capra's bittersweet classic about the life a man leads, and the consequences of his actions. Despite having a beautiful wife (Donna Reed) and a house full of children, small-town family man George Bailey (Stewart) can't seem to catch a break in life. When the evil Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore) puts George in an impossible financial situation, he contemplates suicide. Only the intervention of an angel (Henry Travers) saves him from a lonely fate. A classic now, the film was initially a box office disaster, taking in only $3.3 million against a cost of $3.7 million. It wasn't until the picture became a regular TV staple during the holidays that it finally earned its much deserved recognition and admiration. Collectors will certainly not want to let this gem of a one sheet pass them by, as it's been four years since Heritage last offered this highly sought after poster. In fantastic condition, it had pinholes in the corners with two in the background, and a small tear at the lower crossfold. Touchup has been applied to the folds. Backed on linen, the exact poster dimensions are 27.5" X 40.75". Very Fine on Linen.
