Original Universal Pictures Half Sheet Poster (22x28). Art by Jacques Kapralik. Unfolded. Very Fine Condition.
Original Universal Pictures Half Sheet Poster (22x28) for the George Marshall comedy masterpiece, YOU CAN'T CHEAT AN HONEST MAN starring W.C. Fields and Edgar Bergen. This hilarious film has Fields running a second rate circus and trying to stay one step ahead of the law and his creditors. Fields was a tremendous hit on the radio, especially on ventriloquist Edgar Bergen's program, where he had a long running "feud" with Bergen's "dummy" Charley McCarthy. The film is an attempt to capitalize on this feud, and gags and double takes by the scheming Fields fuels the romp. With torn paper collage caricature art by Jacques Kapralik, this original half sheet poster is in very fine condition. Extremely rare in any condition, this very fine copy in very fine condition is one of the best film posters we currently own. The image area is in great condition - and this half sheet was never folded, but there are some distresses and near-chips in the border area. For this reason we would recommend paper backing for this poster. Ask us about poster conservation.
