    The Roaring Twenties (Warner Brothers, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Fans of the gangster genre won't want to pass up this rarely found one sheet from The Roaring Twenties starring James Cagney, directed by Raoul Walsh, and based on a story by Mark Hellinger. Cagney and Humphrey Bogart rise to power in rival gangs before Bogart dies in a shootout. This picture was a bullet-riddled crimer that was named by the National Board of Review as one of the ten best films of 1939. Original release paper on this title is quite scarce, and this one sheet features a fabulous image of Cagney, Bogart and Priscilla Lane. Touchup has been applied to tears and small paper loss in the right border, a chip in the bottom border, a bottom left corner chip, a tear and chips in the left border at the center horizontal fold, slivers of paper loss in the top left border, fold wear, and crossfold chips. The professional restoration has minimized these signs of handling, and the poster is display-ready. Fine+ on Linen.
