    Description

    Palooka (United Artists, 1934). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Based on the popular Joe Palooka comic strip, this pre-Code comedy features Stuart Erwin as a naive country boy, who gets roped into a series of rigged boxing matches by his crooked promoter, played by Jimmy Durante. The alluring Lupe Velez, a common foil in Durante's films, acts as a gold-digging nightclub dancer and a corrupting influence on the virtuous hero. The first original one sheet sold by Heritage for the film, this stone litho poster shows pinholes in the corners, edge wear in the left border, and the bottom left corner has a light dust shadow and a smudge. There are soft vertical folds from when the poster was originally distributed. Folded, Very Fine.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
