    Strange Cargo (MGM, 1940). One Sheet (27.5" X 41") Style C, Armando Seguso Artwork.
    Clark Gable and Joan Crawford had made a number of films for MGM before appearing together in this riveting drama, marking the last of their on-screen pairings. It's easily one of Gable's most complex and thought provoking films, starring as a convict leading a group of escapees from a French penal colony. Along for the ride on this perilous trek towards freedom are girlfriend Crawford and holy man Ian Hunter, both turning in stirring performances. This dreamy image of Gable and Crawford comes from the brush of the great Armando Seguso, one of the top tier poster artists of the 30's and 40's. Prior to restoration, there were staple holes in the borders and background, slight paper loss in the center and upper crossfolds, and some separation of the lower folds. Touchup has also restored a small chip in the upper left corner and a few minor tears in the image area, which are now unnoticeable. Very Fine- on Linen.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
