Cain and Mabel, the 1936 Lloyd Bacon boxing sports romantic comedy ("When Clark makes love to Marion... the whole wide world's in tune...."; about a heavyweight boxer who wants a shot at the title, and an up-and-coming pretty dancer who wants publicity, and an agent comes up with the idea of them having a fake romance, to get them in the headlines, and get them noticed, but the only problem is that they can't stand each other) starring Marion Davies (in the title role as Mabel O'Dare), Clark Gable (in the title role as Larry Cain), Allen Jenkins, Roscoe Karns, Walter Catlett, and Robert Paige (billed as "David Carlyle")

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that ANY movie posters from this movie is incredibly rare. We have only previously auctioned a one-sheet (25 years ago for $1,495), but no other posters from this movie until we received this poster! Also note that this jumbo window card is not "roll-able", because the paper is thick enough and it is fragile enough that rolling it would damage it. Therefore we will send it in a large flat package that measures approximately 24" x 30". Please bear that extra shipping cost in mind BEFORE placing a bid on this poster!

Condition: good to very good. The poster was partially folded vertically from the center of the top border to Gable's forehead, below his hair. It also had an uneven horizontal tear running across the lower left of the card through Gable's collar and into the bottom of Davies' face, with a crease in her chin. The poster also had some stains and smudges around the edges, with some tears in the lower part of the left and right borders and in the bottom border. Someone put tape on the back of the above defects and performed slight restoration to those areas (you can see signs of the restoration, but it is not very distracting, and the poster will display well on the new owner's wall).
