    Description

    The Philadelphia Story (MGM, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Could there be a better and more sophisticated comedy about love and marriage than George Cukor's "The Philadelphia Story?" We don't think so, and neither do the majority of film aficionados. It had been a successful play on Broadway when Katharine Hepburn (looking for great stories to help revive her sagging career) bought the movie rights. Her gamble paid off. The film was a major hit and single-handedly scrapped the "box-office poison" label she'd been tagged with. Jimmy Stewart won an Oscar as Best Actor and Hepburn was nominated -- again. Although Hepburn would win the Oscar many times, most fans feel this was the role she will best be remembered for. Of the two One Sheets made for this film, this is the style that most collectors desire. Very Fine+ on Linen.
