    Ninotchka (MGM, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
    Greta Garbo, known for her on-screen stoicism and far-away stares, decided to break away from her traditional roles and appear in this witty comedy from director Ernst Lubitsch. And working from a script by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder, the comedy was enticing, romantic and satirical all at the same time. As a Russian communist official, Garbo arrives in Paris to oversee the sale of jewels but quickly falls under the sway of the city and drops her icy facade. Underneath the robotic veneer, she's just as human as anyone else and maybe even more so as she falls for Melvyn Douglas's Count Leon. The studio developed an inspired ad campaign to get the publics attention and announced to the world, "Garbo Laughs." This poster is the better of the two styles and features a stunning portrait of the laughing Garbo. There were some very tiny chips at the center points and some minor chips in the borders. There were several cross-fold tears along the vertical fold line and the white areas of the poster have had light airbrushing. There was a quarter inch trim of the right and left borders and a two inch trim off the top border, however none of these trims extended into any of the art. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
