    Description

    It's a Wonderful Life (RKO, 1946). Window Card (14" X 22").
    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 money-grubbing 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. An incredibly rare item, this is the first time Heritage has ever has the opportunity to sell a window card for this touching classic. The card looks beautiful after restoration to corner bends at the bottom, two minor tears in the bottom border, a tear in the right border, a small tear in the left border, and some creasing to the upper right. The imprint area has had 4" replaced. Fine+.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
