    Description

    That Hamilton Woman (United Artists, 1941). Folded, Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Cited as Winston Churchill's favorite film, That Hamilton Woman is a historical drama produced and directed by British filmmaker Alexander Korda. The film was made while Great Britain was fighting in World War II, and its pro-British themes were meant to raise morale of the British people while portraying them in a sympathetic light to the rest of the world. While the original intent of the film might have lost its impact so many years later, the depiction of Vivien Leigh as the titular Lady Hamilton on this poster provides all the impact film fans could ask for. Leigh stars alongside Laurence Olivier in this moving film, and this one sheet conveys the power and passion the two created on screen. The poster looks great with some edge and fold wear, small tears and fold separations, and minute chips in the crossfolds. There are a few creases and pinholes in the borders, and there are some faint and unobtrusive smudges in the image and title areas. There are also three pieces of paper tape on the verso, two of which can be see from the front in the crossfolds where touchup has been applied to them.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
