DescriptionThe Grapes of Wrath (20th Century Fox, 1940). Folded, Fine+. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
From legendary director John Ford comes this enduring tale, taken from Nobel prize-winning author John Steinbeck's powerful novel about the devastating effects of the Depression and the nightmare of the dust bowl on a generation of Americans. The quintessential adaptation of this epic drama of the indomitable human spirit features a defining performance by Henry Fonda as Tom Joad. As an interesting note, this style B half sheet features the cover of Steinbeck's book, rather than the Thomas Hart Benton artwork of the style A. Signs of handling include mild edge and surface wear, slight creasing, pinholes, and small tears. Also present are some staining and smudges, faint edge toning, as well as a few small bits of paint near the right border. There is a surface cut with tears near the left border braced with strips of paper tape on the verso. The verso also has small pieces of cellophane tape.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
