    Description

    The Bank Dick (Universal, 1940). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41") Style C.
    Comedic genius W.C. Fields stars as Egbert Souse, a man who supports his family by winning radio contests. Souse just happens to be sitting on a park bench where a fleeing bank robber trips and is knocked cold. Proclaimed a hero, Souse is offered a job as a security guard of the bank. Considered by most to be the most beautiful style poster on this favorite Fields film, it has been four years since we have offered a copy of this one sheet. Prior to professional restoration this poster displayed slight fold wear and separation, pinholes, and a few small chips in the borders and folds. The borders have been partially airbrushed. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
