    The Girl from Missouri (MGM, 1934). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C.
    Jean Harlow shines as Eadie Chapman, a poor girl from the slums who, along with pal Kitty (Patsy Kelly), makes it to the big city to find a rich husband. She succeeds in finding playboy T. R. Paige Jr., played by the charming Franchot Tone, but must overcome papa's (Lionel Barrymore) prejudice against his son marrying a showgirl. Harlow was at her best in romantic comedy roles where her bubbly personality and sex appeal could be used to great effect. She was one of the most popular stars in Hollywood at the time of this picture, and one of MGM's biggest box-office draws. The studio went all out in advertising their star, resulting in this spectacular stone litho one sheet, which has to be the prettiest portrait of Harlow we have ever seen. The poster has been professionally restored to address the minor issues of crossfold separations, tack holes, a tiny chip in the right border, and a small abrasion in the lower left field. Paper from this title is scarce and with its excellent condition, this will be a prized piece for just one lucky collector. Very Fine on Linen.
