    Description

    Lost Horizon (Columbia, 1937). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). James Montgomery Flagg Artwork.
    Frank Capra's wonderful fantasy film, winner of two Academy Awards, is well represented by this magnificent one sheet with art by renowned illustrator James Montgomery Flagg. After a plane crash in the Himalayas, Ronald Colman and his fellow passengers are rescued by a mysterious group of sherpas and taken to the legendary land of Shangri-la. There he meets the beautiful Jane Wyatt and the ancient High Lama, portrayed by Sam Jaffe. Posters for this classic film rarely turn up, so here is an opportunity to acquire this highly sought after piece. Prior to expert restoration, the poster once displayed edge and fold wear, fold separations, pinholes, and tears. There was mild creasing, as well as moderate chips in the borders and folds. The lower and upper borders had a 0.5 inch trim, which did not affect any printing or the image. This has been addressed with air brushing in the borders, and the yellow in the title has also been air brushed. The airbrushing is starting to lift from the masa paper in a few places. Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $7,000 - $14,000.
