Product Description

One Sheet Poster. Style D. Linen. Fine Plus to Very Fine.

Original MGM One Sheet Poster, Style D, for the Ernst Lubtisch film THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER (1940) starring James Stewart, Margaret Sullavan and Frank Morgan. There are two one sheets for this film, and this is the painterly style D. The other style has a comic caricature image of the two principals. According to THE MOTION PICTURE GUIDE: "While THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER does not come out and strike at the audience like the more spectacular TO BE OR NOT TO BE or HEAVEN CAN WAIT, this latter-period Lubitsch picture reaches out to the viewer's heart. It is a rare moment in film when the characters on the screen perfectly reflect those people who are sitting in the theater watching them. But such is the case with THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER. In the characters who work at [the shop] one can see all human emotions - happiness, love, devotion, dishonesty, jealousy, and sorrow. In a letter to Herman G. Weinberg, author of the directorial study THE LUBITSCH TOUCH, Lubitsch listed what he felt were the best pictures of his career. After citing TROUBLE IN PARADISE as his best film stylistically and NINOTCHKA as his sharpest satire, he mentioned THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER: 'As for human comedy, I think I never was as good as in THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER. Never did I make a picture in which the atmosphere and the characters were truer than in this picture.' " The one-sheet is in fine plus to very fine condition, with some very minor toning. Colors are vivid. The poster is linen backed and has a short linen lip around the poster. Here is the rarer style poster for an already rare title, clearly one of the great Hollywood films. painterly style D. The other style has a comic caricature image of the two principals.
