DescriptionStorm in a Teacup (United Artists, 1938). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Vivien Leigh left Hollywood in the early '40s before she could do much work within the studio system, but her early British films give fans a taste of how she would have functioned as a contract star. Case in point is the 1937 comedy, Storm in a Teacup, a rare British foray into the screwball genre, in which she proves she could be as hilarious as such American stars as Jean Arthur and Carole Lombard. With her beauty and wit, she's perfect casting as a headstrong heiress tamed by love. As an extra bonus, the film offered Rex Harrison his first big-screen starring role, as a very British version of the fast-talking newsmen played over here by the likes of Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy. Signs of use found in this Heritage first include light edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, creases, and small tears. There is some smudging, and the poster has staining in the borders and the outside of the center horizontal fold. Folded, Fine+.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
