    Description

    His Girl Friday (Columbia, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Howard Hawks lifted a page from the screwball comedy genre by adding rapid-fire and overlapping dialogue to this comedy/mystery about a newspaper editor who tries to reunite with his ex while investigating the escape of a murderer. Whew! This is one of the greatest films of the era, and the posters are highly sought after. This One Sheet is the better of the two (as the other B Style is duo-tone), and almost never becomes available. We're serious! Pass this one by and you may never get offered one again! The wonderful restoration work done to this poster gives it the appearance of a higher grade than stated. Very Good+.
