DescriptionThe Great Ziegfeld (MGM, 1936). Very Fine on Linen. Trimmed One Sheet (27" X 39") Style C.
With its elaborate costumes and dance numbers, The Great Ziegfeld is a highly-acclaimed tribute to Broadway legend Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. The film was one of the top pictures of 1936, winning three of its seven nominations at the 9th Academy Awards, and it remains a popular musical to this day. This beautiful poster highlights stars William Powell, Myrna Loy, and Luise Rainer while giving us just a hint of the fabulous spectacle from the film with its depiction of an beautifully-costumed dancer. Prior to backing on linen, the poster displayed edge and fold wear, small tears, and pinholes. Touchup has been applied to some of these issues. Also still visible are a few minor smudges and unobtrusive stains. There is also an ink stamp on the verso of the poster which is faintly visible in the top left corner of the title area. The linen has been trimmed to the poster's edges on the left and right sides, and it has been trimmed into the borders along the top and bottom, through the trims do not come close to the image area. Overall, the poster displays very well with very little restoration.
Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
