DescriptionThe Great Ziegfeld (MGM, 1936). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Style C.
A poster brilliant in color and featuring fantastic artwork, this gorgeous Style C one sheet is making only its second appearance at Heritage. Winner of the Best Picture of the Year Oscar, this classic all-star musical extravaganza from MGM set a high standard for musicals to come, featuring the most extravagant costumes, choreography, and sets the studio could afford. William Powell stars in this biopic as the legendary showman Florenz Ziegfeld alongside Luise Rainer (who won an Oscar for her role) and Myrna Loy, as his first and second wives. The wonderful original music is by Walter Donaldson and Irving Berlin and Ziegfeld performers Fanny Brice and Ray Bolger play themselves. Corrections to this gorgeous and highly desirable poster include slight fold wear and separations, small chips, a few tears, and some of the pinholes. Still visible are unobtrusive stains and smudges as well as image ghosting. A memento of Hollywood's Golden age at its most lavish, this beautiful poster is an excellent collectible.
Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
