DescriptionSullivan's Travels (Paramount, 1941). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
Far more rare than the style A one sheet, this style B poster has only been offered a handful of times at Heritage, and what a great poster it is! Colorful and stylized, the illustration is an eye-catching piece perfect for fans of Veronica Lake. A touching yet satirical take on Hollywood's film industry, many consider Sullivan's Travels to be director Preston Sturges' finest film. Joel McCrea performs well as the earnest director wishing to learn more about the real world, and Lake does a fine job as his love interest despite being six months pregnant at the time. Not often seen up for auction, this fantastic poster has received professional touchup to fold wear and separations, pinholes, and to small chips and tears, including a minor chip in the upper crossfold. Most of these issues have been addressed, and the poster still shows a couple of faint stains in the side borders. These, however, are barely noticeable and do not affect the one sheet's classic image.
Estimate: $6,000 - $12,000.
