One of the best...

HOLIDAY IN MEXICO (1946) $1,000.00

Vintage original 41 x 81" (102 x 202 cm.) three sheet poster style A, USA. Jane Powell, Ilona Massey, Walter Pidgeon, Jose Iturbi, dir: George Sidney; MGM. Advertised as a musical romance in carnival Technicolor, this poster is a testament to that statement with its vivid rainbow motif. Posters for MGM's 1940s musicals were lively, and this one has the added rarity of the eccentric caricature art by Jacques Kapralik. MGM often used his charming cut-out collage art for Lion's Roar magazine covers and full page inserts, but very seldom on posters -- making this large format gem a rarity....

A romantic film noir, taking place in postwar London.

Vintage original 41 x 81" three sheet poster, USA. Iris Adrian, Frank Jenks, Douglas Fowley, Jack Raymond, dir: Albert Herman; Producers Releasing Corporation.

In the story, she and her partner set out to help prove an accused embezzler of his innocence. Adrian started out in the chorus of films, worked her way into bits, supporting roles in A-films and leads in B-films. This, and many...
