Original 20th Century Fox Three Sheet Poster (41x81). Stone Lithograph. Folded. Very Good Condition.

Original 20th Century Fox Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the Alexander Korda comedy, AN IDEAL HUSBAND (1947) starring Paulette Goddard, Michael Wilding, Diana Wynyard, and Hugh Williams. Adapted from a popular Oscar Wilde play, this Victorian drawing room comedy focuses on the dilemma of a prominent British politician, who wants to expose a financial fraud but who is threatened with personal ruin if he does. Besides the very witty and clever dialogue, the ladies are sumptuously costumed by Cecil Beaton. Big stone lithograph image of Paulette Goddard as Mrs. Laura Cheveley. Lajos Biro wrote the screenplay based on Wilde's famous play, but nowhere in the film is Wilde credited. But on this U.S. poster (the film is British) Wilde's name is prominent. This original three sheet poster is folded and in very good condition. There is some fold deterioration in one area. This is a beautiful Fox stone lithograph, which should be linen backed. Ask us about linen backing. And read our post on this site about poster restorations.
