MGM Original One Sheet Poster Style D 27x41 Folded Very Fine Stone Lithograph

Original MGM One-Sheet Poster (27x41) for the W.S. VanDyke film ESKIMO (1933) starring Mala, Lotus Lang, Lulu Wong Wing, Joe Sawyer and Edward Hearn. These notes from wikipedia give some great information about the film: "It is based on the books "Der Eskimo" and "Die Flucht in weisse Land" by Danish explorer and author Peter Freuchen. The film stars Ray Mala as Mala, Lulu Wong Wing as Mala's first wife Aba, Lotus Lang as Mala's second wife Iva, Peter Freuchen as the Ship Captain, W.S. Van Dyke as Inspector White and Joseph Sauers as Sergeant Hunt. Eskimo was the first feature film to be shot in a Native American language (Inupiat), and the first feature film shot in Alaska. The film also incidentally documented the hunting and cultural practices of Native Alaskans. The production for the film was based at Teller, Alaska, where housing, storage facilities, a film laboratory and other structures were build to house the cast, crew and equipment....The motion picture was well received by critics upon release on 14 November 1933 and received the first ever Academy Award for Best Film Editing, although it did not fare well at the box office." The poster is in very fine condition. It is folded, but with vivid color and well preserved. MovieArt Austin guarantees this poster to be an authentic and fully original poster from this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
