    Description

    Personality Posters: Ruth Chatterton, George Bancroft and Richard Arlen (Paramount, early 1930s). Posters (3) (27" X 41").
    With artwork by Charles Lennox Wright II, these are extraordinarily rare personality posters printed on a heavy weight paper. Wright was a very fine painter who studied with William Merritt Chase and illustrated movie posters for Paramount and RKO in the 1920's and 30's. The posters feature Paramount stars Ruth Chatterton, George Bancroft, and Richard Arlen from the earliest years of the sound era. All three posters have some edge wear with small tears, pinholes, corner creases, and tape on the reverse. The Chatterton poster has some surface creasing as well as a crease in the image area. The Bancroft poster shows surface creasing, while the Arlen poster has tears and some surface creasing. All in all, these are lovely posters, featuring a trio of glamorous stars from a by-gone era. Rolled, Very Good/Fine.
