Description

    My Man Godfrey (Universal, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C.
    This is a very beautiful and rare one sheet poster for one of the 1930's classiest screwball comedies. William Powell and Carole Lombard star in this Gregory La Cava directed film which has always rated at the top of everyone's "All Time Greatest Comedies" list. Powell stars as a hobo named Godfrey who is hired by spoiled rich girl Lombard as a prank to annoy her family. Her sister does all she can to prove Godfrey a fraud, but to no avail. In the meantime, Lombard's character realizes she is falling in love with Godfrey! Imagine everyone's surprise when they discover who Godfrey really is! This beautiful, art deco style poster, with artwork by Karoly Grosz, rarely shows up for auction and Heritage has never sold a one sheet to this title before! This style is considered by many to be the best of the different posters produced for the film. Inadvertently left to go into public domain, the film itself has survived in inferior prints and badly duped quality. But now a UCLA preserved camera negative print has been released on Blu-Ray, restoring the film to its original glory. Prior to being linen-backed, this nearly pristine poster displayed only very light fold wear. Very Fine+ on Linen.
