DescriptionThe Harvey Girls (MGM, 1949). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. First Post-War Release Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 78") Ercole Brini Artwork.
Always a Judy Garland fan favorite, The Harvey Girls saw Garland and Ray Bolger together again for the first time since Dorothy and the Scarecrow danced down the yellow brick road. Angela Lansbury makes an early appearance, as well as Cyd Charisse in her first cinematic speaking role. Rounding it all out was a fabulous score from industry veterans Harry Warren and Johnny Mercer, who netted an Academy Award for the unforgettable tune "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe." Despite this time period marking the beginning of Garland's notorious tardiness and absences on set, the star absolutely nailed the song's lengthy and elaborate one-shot opening sequence, and they were able to wrap the scene after just two takes! Professional restoration has repaired fold wear and separation, pinholes, some tears, as well as chips in the borders and folds. There was paper loss in the top of the vertical fold, and the upper and side borders have been airbrushed. The poster has a few partially addressed stains in the upper background. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
