    Description

    This Above All (20th Century Fox, 1942). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41.5") Style A.
    Nominated for four Oscars and winner for Best Art Direction, Anatole Litvak's beautiful film stars Joan Fontaine, an aristocrat who joins the WAF during WWII, and Tyrone Power, an army deserter who many patriotic citizens try to lead back to his regiment. The title refers to a line in Hamlet, "This above all: to thine own self be true," which is recited at the end of the movie as an air raid siren sounds. Professional repairs have addressed slight edge and fold wear, moderate fold separations, pinholes, and a few creases. There were chips in the borders and folds, as well as small tears. Parts of the borders have been airbrushed.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
