Description

    Storm in a Teacup (United Artists, 1938). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    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 pixilated 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. Touchup to the folds and pinholes in the borders. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $300 - $600.
