DescriptionThe Shop Around the Corner (MGM, 1945). First Post-War Release French Grande (47.75" X 62.75") Boris Grinsson Artwork.
Released in France just two weeks before Paris surrendered to the Allied forces, this rare French grande hails from one of director Ernst Lubitsch's best pictures. Set in pre-World War II Budapest, the film stars James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan as employees of a small gift shop that have developed an intense dislike for each other. Unknown to them both, they have been corresponding as romantic pen pals, and have fallen in love with their literary selves. With beautiful artwork by the skilled Boris Grinsson, this poster has had touchup applied to the folds, pinholes in the borders and interior, and small border and crossfold chips. Some of the pinholes are not addressed. There was chipping in the left side of the lower horizontal fold, the lower left corner, and paper loss in the upper left corner. There are a few unaddressed stains, as well as some post-restoration staining to the lower right. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
