    Description

    The Pride of the Yankees (RKO, 1942). One Sheet (27" X 41"). In one of his most memorable roles, Gary Cooper stars as baseball legend Lou Gehrig, who not only conquered the Great American Pastime, but also heroically battled amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a deadly nerve disorder better known today as "Lou Gehrig's Disease." This motion picture, a tribute to a great sportsman that was released just over a year after the death of "The Iron Horse," is a favorite of both movie and sports buffs worldwide. The striking one sheet offered here had minor crossfold separations, and a small tear in the bottom left, but professional restoration has addressed these minor issues handsomely, resulting in a very attractive, and very desirable, poster from a classic film. Very Fine- on Linen.

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