One-Sheet (27" x 41")
Fine+ on Linen; Artist Vincenti (Ted Ireland)
MGM produced some of the most beautiful posters during their Golden Age, and this is no exception. Featuring wonderful portraits by Vincenti of James Stewart and Joan Crawford, it's stone litho images feature Art-Deco influences.
The poster, before being restored, had pinholes in the corners and a few staple holes in the image. There was tape supporting the center cross fold and the upper cross fold, and the upper vertical fold. That was all carefully removed without damaging the image, and a slight touchup was applied to the blemishes.
Joan Crawford and James Stewart get their skates on in this musical drama about an ice skater (Stewart) who falls in love with a less proficient skater (Crawford), before she gets work as an actress in Hollywood - an event which threatens their marriage.
