    Description

    Raffles (United Artists, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Starring Olivia DeHavilland and David Niven in the popular title role, this is one of several film adaptations of an 1899 novel by E. W. Hornung, Raffles, the Amateur Cracksman. In fact, Sidney Howard wrote the screenplay for both this movie and the 1930 film of the same name starring Ronald Colman. F. Scott Fitzgerald may also have worked on the script, but this is unconfirmed. The one sheet offered here is a lovely illustration of the two stars in the prime of their careers. The poster has some crossfold wear and pinholes in the corners and at the intersection of the vertical fold and the upper and bottom borders. There are two larger pinholes in DeHavilland's shoulder as well. Fine/Very Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
