    Description

    Silver Dollar (First National, 1932). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Using fictitious names, this film is based on the tumultuous life story of H. A. W. Tabor and his mistress, then wife, Baby Doe. Edward G. Robinson plays Yates Martin (Tabor) and Bebe Daniels plays Lily Owens (Baby Doe). Robinson makes his fortune in the silver mines, and establishes Denver, Colorado as a major city. But he then loses everything when the price of silver crashes, which drives him to insanity. The poster had fold wear with minor chipping and paper loss on the right border, crossfold separations, and chips out of the left border. Warner Brothers posters from this pre-Code era are exceptionally difficult to find in any condition, and they are some of the most beautiful produced! By our estimation, we believe there to be less than a very small handful of these one sheets known to exist. The expert restoration has left the defects on this gorgeous stone litho one sheet nearly invisible. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
