    Vitaphone Short Subject (Warner Brothers, 1939). Fine+ on Linen. Trimmed Stock One Sheet (26.25" X 40").
    Making its debut appearance at Heritage, this stock poster proves that short subject films are just as deserving of fantastic art as their feature-length counterparts. Warner Brothers often provided colorful artwork for their two-reeler comedy and musical shorts, sometimes rivaling the images found on their feature one sheets. Professional restoration has addressed slight fold wear and separation, small tears, as well as minute chips at the crossfolds. The linen has been trimmed to the poster's edges, and the poster's borders have also been trimmed. The borders have been partially airbrushed.

    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
