    Description

    The Wizard of Oz (MGM, 1939). Half Sheet (22" X 28"). Time has been powerless to erase the enduring magic of this wonderful film which has delighted generations of children, both young and old, for over six decades. Judy Garland brings to life Dorothy Gale, the child in all of us, who yearns to escape to a perfect place over the rainbow. Along her way to the magical land of Oz, Dorothy encounters a host of unforgettable characters: the clever Scarecrow, the sentimental Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, witches both good and bad, and the wonderful Wizard of Oz. This poster has pinholes, tears, and small areas of paper loss to the borders. There are three border tears that extend just into the background, light surface wrinkles and a pinhole in the "W" of Wizard. The poster has been professionally restored, rendering these defects hard to detect. The colors remain just as bold and brilliant as the Technicolor Triumph Dorothy first encountered 65 years ago when she took her first steps into the dazzling land of Oz. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
