    Description

    The Penguin Pool Murder (RKO, 1932). Very Fine on Linen. Three Sheet (41" X 80.5").
    Edna May Oliver portrays a schoolteacher turned sleuth who spots a dead body in the penguin's pool at the zoo. The usual suspects turn out to be not the culprits thanks to the combined investigation by Oliver and police inspector James Gleason. Beautiful artwork of the pair and the dead man on this wonderful three sheet, a first time offering from Heritage. In great condition, this poster has received light touchup to bits of fold wear. Unaddressed issues include light edge wear, pinholes, and a moderate tear in the left border. Also visible are unobtrusive smudges and a thin dust shadow at the upper edge. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
