    Description

    Spitfire (RKO, 1934). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This radiant stone litho illustration is by far one of the best images of Katharine Hepburn to ever grace a poster. Only two years into her Hollywood career, Hepburn had already become a highly regarded actress due to her impressive range of talent. Most notably, she won the 1933 Academy Award for Best Actress as Eva Lovelace in Morning Glory and attracted scores of audience members to her landmark performance as Jo March in Little Women. Offered for the first time by Heritage, the colors in this lovely illustration are just as brilliant as the day they were printed. The poster shows very little wear with only pinholes, a light vertical crease at the top border and background, small mirrored tears in the top and bottom borders, and a slight edge tear at the left center horizontal fold. There is mild edge wear with a thin dust shadow in the bottom border. There are soft vertical folds from when it was originally distributed. Folded, Very Fine+.


    Estimate: $15,000 - $30,000.
