    The Best Years of Our Lives (RKO, 1946). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    Boasting a fabulous cast including Myrna Loy, Frederic March, Virginia Mayo, Dana Andrews, and Teresa Wright, The Best Years of Our Lives was the highest-grossing movie since Gone With the Wind upon its release. The film was a critical success, winning seven of the eight competitive Academy Awards for which it was nominated, including Best Motion Picture and Best Director for William Wyler. This lovely one sheet for the movie focuses on the cast, highlighting the stellar actors with smiling portraits. The poster is on linen, and restoration has addressed edge and fold wear, fold separations, small chips and tears, and pinholes. There was some surface paper loss on the poster's verso, and still visible are a few faint smudges. The orange background behind the title has been airbrushed, giving the poster a nice clean appearance.

    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
