Gone with the Wind (MGM, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style DP.
Legendary producer David O. Selznick's name is almost synonymous with the mega-hit Gone With the Wind, based on author Margaret Mitchell's literary masterpiece. This stunning image from Scarlett and Rhett's dance scene was made by the noted illustrator Armando Seguso, who created most of the artwork for the film's posters. Shortly after the film's initial 1939 roadshow release, it went into a wider release in early 1940 and, to allay the public's fears that the film would be abridged, MGM announced that the only thing that had been cut were the ticket prices. Some of the first one sheets printed were shipped out with paper snipes attached to them announcing "Full Length, Nothing Cut," while others, such as this one, were printed with the information on the poster. This is the very rare style DP and is one of the more desirable of the four styles. Touch-up has been applied to pinholes in the borders, fold wear, and white areas. Savvy collectors won't want to miss this one! Very Fine- on Linen.
