    Description

    Midnight (Paramount, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The 1930s was a great decade for Hollywood; the days when a yarn about a down-on-her-luck chorus girl pretending to be a Baroness could still pack a theatre. Here's a brilliant screwball comedy with a wonderful Hollywood "back story" and terrific dialogue by Billy Wilder that not only holds up to this day, but simply sparkles. Starring Claudette Colbert and Don Ameche, Paramount thought the original script needed "rewrites." So one office told another to send it out to their best script doctor. They sent it to Wilder without consulting the first department, and Wilder, realizing what had happened, simply retyped the script and sent it back in! The "rewrite" was quickly accepted and filmed! There is professional touchup at the folds, a small chip at the top of the vertical fold, and an upper right corner with a vertical tear. Partially addressed issues include pinholes in the borders and interior, as well as small edge tears. Very Fine- on Linen.
