    Description

    The Devil's Brother (MGM, 1933). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D, Al Hirschfeld Artwork.
    Stan Laurel often stated that of all the Laurel and Hardy films, this one was a top favorite. The film is noted for Stan's increasingly rapid game of Earsy-Kneesy-Nosey. This wonderful stone litho one sheet, with artwork by the great Al Hirschfeld, is lovely in its simplicity and also features a great image of Nina Quartero as Rita. Laurel and Hardy fans should take note that we are unaware of any other surviving copies of this incredibly rare poster. It has had light touchup to the folds, pinholes, a few tears, as well as small bits of paper loss in the left background and a tiny bit in Oliver Hardy's lower lip. There were small stains in the yellow background as well. Unaddressed issues include edge wear, staining in the borders, some surface scuffs, and slight creases, a few of which have cracked in the left background. This poster not only presents a great opportunity for Laurel and Hardy collectors, but also for Hirschfeld fans as well.
