    Description

    The Glenn Miller Story by Reynold Brown (Universal International, 1954). Very Fine. Original Gouache Advertising Artwork on Illustration Board (15.25" X 19.75", Matted: 16.5" X 20.25").
    Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson star in this romanticized biography of the legendary Big Band leader. Offered here is a rare original illustration used in the promotion of the film. The art of Reynold Brown is highly prized by poster collectors; examining his original artwork inspires even more respect, as it becomes clear how much the talented painter was able to convey with relatively few brushstrokes. This lovely image is gouache on illustration board and has an acetate overlay containing the text elements and some photo headshots, and the entire piece has been matted for presentation. There are a few adhesive stains, faint smudges, and minute scratches. There appears to be a missing photo in the lower right, however it is possible that the photo may have been removed during production.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
