    Description

    The Great Ziegfeld (MGM, 1936). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41") Style D, Ted "Vincentini" Ireland Artwork.
    There isn't much in the way of original paper still available for Robert Z. Leonard's memorable musical, and this poster is one of the best formats produced for the film. Golden Age poster artist Ted "Vincentini" Ireland provides the fantastic illustration seen on the style D one sheet, featuring the likenesses of starring players William Powell, Luise Rainer, and Myrna Loy. One of the most lavish productions of Hollywood's Golden Age, Universal Studios originally held the rights to the film, but sold the property to MGM for $300,000 ($5.5 million in today's dollars) when it seemed the production would be too expensive. The spectacle stunned viewers and earned Oscars for Best Picture, Luise Rainer's performance as Best Actress, and Best Dance Direction. Professionally restored, the poster once had slight edge and fold wear, minor tears, pinholes, and writing bleedthrough in the upper left. After these corrections, this one sheet would make an excellent acquisition for Golden Age collectors.
