    Description

    The Sea Hawk (Warner Brothers, Late 1946). First Post-War Release Italian (39.5" X 81").
    Warner Brothers Studio pulled out all the stops on this opulent swashbuckler and many consider it Errol Flynn's best. Based on the privateering adventures of Sir Francis Drake, Flynn stars as Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe, a loyal British subject and pirate to boot! With luscious sets and costumes and a rousing musical score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, this film was what Warner Brothers did best at this time in their history. This unexpected find will delight swashbuckler fans the world over -- a special large format Italian poster with Flynn engaging in a little swordplay punctuated by vibrant colors. A Heritage first, collectors won't want to miss such a unique opportunity. Touchup to the folds and misfolds, pinholes in the borders, a chip in the top border, two chips in the top border, and a chip in the right border. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
