Description

    Sullivan's Travels (Paramount, 1941.) One Sheet (27" X 41"). Considered by many to be writer-director Preston Sturges' finest film, this was the story of a director's desire to quit making fluff pictures and go out and see the "real" world so that he can make a serious film. The slapstick and pathos that marks this adventure of director Joel McCrea and beautiful Veronica Lake are as wonderful as the day the film was made. The minor restoration includes repair to two border chips (in the center of the lower border and another on the right edge of the lower fold line) and some light color touch to the fold lines with a bit more in the center points. There was also some minor color touch to the background in the upper two corners where there were pinholes and there was light airbrushing along some spots on the borders. Although this does sound like quite a bit of work, it is actually fairly minor and this one sheet absolutely shines. Other than the one sheet for "This Gun For Hire", there isn't a Veronica Lake one sheet that is more collectible. Add that to the fact this sheet is the rarer of the two then this is THE one sheet for the peek-a-boo blonde you must have for your collection. Very Fine- on Linen.
