DescriptionThe Wizard of Oz (MGM, 1939). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C, Al Hirschfeld Artwork.
With whimsical drawings of the film's characters by famed caricaturist Al Hirschfeld, this fabulous style C poster for The Wizard of Oz is offered here for the first time at Heritage. Directed by Victor Fleming and starring Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Jack Bolger, Jack Haley, and Bert Lahr, The Wizard of Oz is one of the most beloved fantasy musicals of all time, enchanting generations of people, young and old alike. Equally enchanting is this gorgeous one sheet, which will be the highlight of any film fan's collection. Professional restoration has addressed fold wear and separations, chips, tears, and pinholes. Some of the paper in the borders has been replaced, but the missing paper does not extend into the text or images. There was also a vertical tear in the "O" in "Oz," but restoration and airbrushing in the background and borders have brought this poster back to a vibrant condition that displays beautifully.
Estimate: $20,000 - $40,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
