    Description

    Alice Adams (RKO, 1935). Three Sheet (41" X 79.75").
    In a role that star Katharine Hepburn frequently cited as one of her very favorites, she plays Alice Adams, a young social climber who falls in love with a man of means, a man way out of her league (Fred MacMurray). Although Hepburn lost out on the Best Actress Oscar for this performance, Bette Davis, the winner in 1935 for Dangerous, commented on numerous occasions that Hepburn really deserved the honor. Paper on this George Stevens' directed film is very scarce, especially large formats such as this phenomenal stone litho three sheet. Filled with a larger-than-life portrait of Hepburn and MacMurray, the poster is a fine tribute to the legendary leading lady. In highly presentable condition, the poster benefited from careful touchup to chips in the right and left border, pinholes in Hepburn's forehead, and fold wear with tiny chips in the bottom horizontal fold. Collectors are unlikely to have this opportunity within reach again anytime soon! Very Fine- on Linen.
