    Description

    Superman (Columbia, 1948). Autographed One Sheet (27" X 41") Chapter 14 -- "Superman at Bay."
    Although Superman, that strange visitor from another planet who came to Earth with powers superior to those of mortal men, was a star of comic books, newspaper strips and animated cartoons, by 1948 he had never appeared in a live action film. That all changed when the energetic and charismatic Kirk Alyn brought him to life on the big screen in the form of a serial. Superman would go on to become one of Columbia's biggest successes, and spawned not only the inevitable sequel, but the popular TV series as well. Signed by Kirk Alyn, this colorful one sheet features not just exciting artwork of our hero, but also an inset photo of Superman with leading lady Lois Lane, played by Noel Neill. It shows some general edge and fold wear, slight crossfold separations, and light creases. The poster also has unobtrusive stains and smudges, a small piece of cellophane tape at the lower crossfold on the verso, and pinholes in the corners with light tape stains. There is an ink censorship stamp with an inked signature in the lower background with another stamp on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
