Original Paramount Pictures Style A One Sheet Poster (27x41). Fine plus condition.

Original Paramount Pictures Style A One Sheet Poster for the Cecil B. DeMille war drama, THE STORY OF DR. WASSELL (1944) starring Gary Cooper, Laraine Day, Signe Hasso, and Dennis O'Keefe. This film is the story of an American doctor (Cooper) who was ordered to abandon his stretcher cases as the Allies were evacuating Java in 1942, before the Japanese advance. But Dr. Wassell stays behind and gets his wounded men evacuated. While many Hollywood movies depicting World War II are overly sentimental and patriotic, this film (made only two years after the actual events) is about an Allied defeat and how one man risked his life to save the wounded. This original style A one sheet poster is in fine plus condition. Some pinholes, minimal fold separations at intersections, but good color. This poster could easily present as very fine with a simple linen backing. See the featured content on this site about Linen Backing and Restoration.
