A 1949 Realart Re-Release Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

Bombay Clipper, the 1942 John Rawlins airplane aviation mystery suspense thriller (about a newly married foreign correspondent whose wife wants him to quit the business and settle down, and they are taking a honeymoon trip on a plane that is transporting a fortune in diamonds, and they soon learn there are foreign spies on the plane trying to steal the diamonds, and the man wants to stop them!) starring William Gargan, Irene Hervey, Charles Lang, Maria Montez, Mary Gordon, Lloyd Corrigan, Truman Bradley, Turhan Bey, Warren Ashe, Jack Lee, Pat O'Malley, C. Montague Shaw, and Harry Strang. Note that the movie was made in late 1941, and the spies were clearly Asian, but the country they came from was left unnamed, but it seemed they were Japanese. By the time the movie made it to theaters in 1942, Pearl Harbor had happened, and by that point, there was no need to not name the country the spies were from, but it was too late to change the movie!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that while we have auctioned several examples of the 1942 first release one-sheet, we have never before auctioned this 1949 Realart re-release one-sheet!

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had tiny paper loss at the crossfolds and a few tiny tears and tiny bits of paper loss on parts of some folds, with some pinholes around the edges. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
