DescriptionThe Wizard of Oz (MGM, 1945). Fine- on Linen. First Release Spanish One Sheet (27.5" X 39").
Based on Frank Baum's classic novel, this timeless tale of Dorothy's journey over the rainbow grows more popular with each passing generation. Starring the sixteen-year-old Judy Garland and a cast of extraordinary performers, the film is magic from the first black and white moment until the glorious Technicolor end. Benefitting from professional restoration, this lovely Spanish one sheet has received repairs to edge and fold wear, pinholes, creasing, and tears. There were small chips at the edges, in addition to scattered chipping and paper loss in the lower border extending from the bottom of the Tin Man's image into Victor Fleming's credit. The poster has mild unaddressed color fading, however the yellow background has been airbrushed. The linen is trimmed to the edge of the poster and not into the poster itself.
Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
