DescriptionKnute Rockne - All American (Warner Brothers, 1940). Very Good on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
This very rare one sheet is from one of the best and most inspirational sports biographies ever made, Knute Rockne - All American. Pat O'Brien delivers an unforgettable performance as the famed football coach for Notre Dame. Interestingly, the film's most famous scene, George Gipp's (Ronald Reagan) deathbed admonition to "Win one for the Gipper," was for many years removed from all TV prints due to a legal entanglement stemming from an earlier radio dramatization of Rockne's life. Restoration has addressed edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, pinholes, faint ink stamp bleedthrough, and a few tears. Also corrected was some chipping in the borders and folds, including in Pat O'Brien's face. Some of these issues are still visible, as well as unaddressed smudges. There has been a bit of slight smudging in the touchup at the folds. Very Good on Linen.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
