    They Made Me a Criminal (Warner Brothers, 1939). Other Company One Sheet (27" X 41"). Perennial tough guy John Garfield made one of his best crime films with this entry in the pantheon of Warner Brothers pictures. The film was directed by Busby Berkeley; better known as the best dance choreographer of the 1930s, staging numbers in "42nd Street" and other Warners' musicals. In this tale, Garfield plays a boxer who gets implicated in a murder. He goes on the run and hides out at a farm for juvenile delinquents, whom he begins to train to fight. As you might expect, the delinquents were the Dead End Kids. Ann Sheridan has a small part at the beginning of the film. This poster from the "Other Company" had about 1/2" of the width of the of the border trimmed around the poster. This did not effect any of the copyright or image at all. There were also minor tears and chipping along the fold lines. All of this has been repaired and the poster is now quite presentable. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
