    Description

    The Green Pastures (Warner Brothers, 1936). Swedish One Sheet (27" X 39.5") Bohm Artwork.
    Based on the short stories collected in Ol' Man Adam and His Chillun, by Roark Bradford, this movie presents well-known Bible stories through the eyes of a young black child in the Depression-era South, who interprets the stories based on her own perspective. A controversial film at the time of its release - it was seen as blasphemous in some countries - the movie and its all-black cast was, nevertheless, well-received by critics and the general public alike. The movie stars such notable performers as Rex Ingram as De Lawd, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson as Noah, and Oscar Polk as Gabriel. Featuring lovely artwork by Bohm, this rare Swedish poster shows mild edge wear, small tears in the borders, a diagonal crease with slight tears at the edges, and some minor paper lifts near the left border. There are a couple of torn pinholes at the top of the poster that run to the upper border, one of which extends into the background and has been repaired with archival tape on the verso. Rolled, Fine+.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
