Original Twentieth Century Fox One Sheet (27 x 41). Very Fine Condition.

Original 20th Century Fox One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Harmon Jones sport biography, THE PRIDE OF ST. LOUIS (1952) starring Dan Dailey, Joanne Dru, and Richard Hylton. This film is the story of Jerome "Dizzy" Dean, a major-league baseball pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs in the 1930's and 1940's. Dan Dailey successfully captures the colorful personality of Dizzy Dean, the son of a sharecropper with little education. When a foot injury lead to his eventual decline as a star player, Dean learned how to make his zany charm work for him in a new career as baseball radio commentator. This is one of the prettier baseball-related U.S. film posters. Dan Dailey is shown as pitcher on the poster in his St. Louis Cardinals uniform and also as the sportscaster who became a legend in the world of TV. This is a film which is fun for the whole family. Such a sunny poster would look great anywhere. Very fine condition.
