    Description

    The Women (MGM, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
    Based on Clare Booth Luce's hit play of the same name, this innovative film sees George Cukor direct and feature an all-star, all female cast. With some of the biggest names in 1930s Hollywood, including Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Ruth Hussey, Virginia Grey, and more, Cukor had his hands full, but the result is a humorous look at the damage women do to each other when it comes to men. Screenwriter Anita Loos is responsible for much of the success of the film which is full of her sharp, quick-witted dialogue. This rare style D format features Crawford, Shearer, and Russell, along with an inset of the great fashion show scene that was filmed in Technicolor. Touchup has been applied to the folds, pinholes in the corners, mild tears, and chips in the borders. There was a large vertical tear in the left border off of the lower horizontal fold, but this does not in any way intrude into the image area. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
