    Description

    The Palm Beach Story (Paramount, 1942). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea star in this charming romantic comedy directed by Preston Sturges. McCrea plays an inventor strapped for cash, and Colbert is his wife, who comes up with a scheme to help: she'll divorce her husband and marry a rich man instead, using his fortune to finance her husband's career! The film also features an outstanding performance by 1920s heart-throb Rudy Vallee as eccentric millionaire John D. Hackensacker III. Prior to restoration, the poster had fold wear and separation, pinholes, creases, and small tears. There are some chips in the borders and folds, as well as some paper loss in the top left corner and in the right border extending slightly into the image.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
