#CH326-23  - Lucille Ball Miss Grant Takes Richmond Movie Poster/Broadside
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1949 Lucille Ball and William Holden movie "Miss Grant Takes Richmond". Please click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
$6.00



#CH406  - 1940s First Run Movie Posters Broadsides - As low as $1.50
These are paper movie posters/broadsides, mostly from the mid 1940s. If you order 20 or less, all will be different. Size varies, up to 12" or more tall. Some are different widths. All of them feature famous movies that ran from about 1939 to 1951, and all have a similar look to the ones pictured. Please note that most of these were first run movies with famous stars. Old unused movie theatre stock. PLEASE NOTE - Many have edge roughness or small edge tears. They can all be trimmed to look great. All of these were found by Bob Secrist at a northern Ohio theatre many years ago. They served the theatre as handouts and broadsides/posters that would announce the latest cowboy movie at the theatre. They would tack them on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived except this large stash that Bob uncovered in the theatre storage area. He was one of the most respected and well known collectors in the country. We got these directly from his estate. They are much scarcer than lobby posters. We have them priced so low because there are a lot of them.  Over time, they will run low, and our prices will increase on them. These are great Americana pieces at silly low prices. Get them at these prices while you can.
