    Description

    The Front Page (United Artists, 1932). Folded, Very Fine+. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5").
    During the early years of the talking picture, a popular sub-genre of film was the newspaper story. It played an important role in helping to refine the way in which dialogue was presented in the new talkies, and were enthusiastically received by Depression Era audiences. One of the best, and most popular, entries in this category was The Front Page, starring Adolphe Menjou and Pat O'Brien, and based on the popular stage comedy written by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur. This stone litho poster shows slight edge and fold wear, pinpoint crossfold separations, and a pinhole at the top. There are also minor creases and a few faint stains. Folded, Very Fine+.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
