DescriptionMagnificent Obsession (Universal, 1935). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
Love, loss, and accidental blindness all feature in this soapy melodrama, based off of the popular premier novel by Lloyd C. Douglas. Unfortunately, it is little seen in the wake of the Rock Hudson/Jane Wyman remake, though many critics consider this to be the superior film. Never before offered at Heritage, this half sheet shows a romantic moment suspended between Irene Dunn and Robert Taylor, looking lovely after professional restoration to pinholes in the borders and interior, as well as a few vertical tears and creases in the left border art and background. There has been a slight bit of touchup to Irene Dunn and Robert Taylor's lips. Issues that are still visible include some faint staining in the left border and a thin dust shadow at the bottom. There is a post-restoration bend in the bottom right corner with archival tape on the verso. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
