Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen Backed Restored to Fine Condition

Original Warner Bros Vitaphone pre-code one sheet for the William Beaudine directed film THE LADY WHO DARED (1931). The film stars Billie Dove, Sidney Blackmer and Conway Tearle. These notes from Heritage Auctions give a good overview of the movie: "This picture was intended as a "comeback" vehicle for silent film starlet Billie Dove, whose popularity at the height of her career rivaled that of Mary Pickford, Marion Davies, and Clara Bow. Originally a teen model, she was discovered by Flo Ziegfeld, and soon gained a spot in his famous Ziegfeld Follies Revue. In 1926, she appeared opposite Douglas Fairbanks Sr. in The Black Pirate, and starred in The American Beauty in 1927. Dove shared a three year relationship with billionaire Howard Hughes, and was an accomplished poet, pilot, and painter. In 1932, while still popular with movie-going audiences, Dove retired, never to return to the screen save but for a brief cameo in 1962's Diamond Head. She passed away in 1997. The striking one sheet offered here, with its stunning image of Dove, is truly breathtaking. With deep, rich color, this stone litho beauty is a true gem. Professional restoration has addressed tears in the upper right, and a hole and tear that extends into the artwork in the lower left. As well, the borders have been retouched and about three quarters of an inch of missing paper has been replaced in the top border." We have not seen this poster except for this example and we offer here for the first time. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. one-sheet poster for this film.
