Description

    Rain (Atlantic, R-1938). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Joan Crawford gives one of her most memorable performances as Sadie Thompson, a prostitute stuck on Pago Pago when the ship that she was on is quarantined. Sadie is fine with the delay -- she takes up with the Marines who are stationed there, especially Sgt. O'Hara (William Gargan), who is starting to fall in love with her. But missionary Alfred Davidson (Walter Huston) is disturbed by Sadie's very existence and works to convert her and save her soul. And all the while, the rain keeps falling. Atlantic Pictures gained distribution rights from various studios and re-issued some early 1930s films six or seven years after their initial release. Their roster for 1938 included Scarface, Hell's Angels, and this film. The borders were folded back, there were pinholes in the corners, and a few into the background and the the image area, a small hole in the left background, a few tears in a couple of borders, and a misfold in at the upper horizontal fold. Touchup has been applied to the folds. This is a Heritage first for this wonderful poster! Very Fine- on Linen.
