DescriptionThe Pride of the Yankees (RKO, 1942). Folded, Very Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Royal Theatre Collection.
This picture tells the story of legendary Yankee's slugger and first baseman Lou Gehrig who, at the peak of his career, developed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative condition now referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease." Although Sam Goldwyn reportedly considered the story "box office poison," the picture went on to become an enormous hit, featuring one of Gary Cooper's most emotional, and memorable, performances. Not seen at Heritage for several years, sports fans will love this excellent one sheet! It has only very minor fold separations, pinholes, and some faint image ghosting.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
