An Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked Insert Movie Poster (measures 14" x 36" [36 x 91 cm]) (Learn More)

Break of Hearts, the 1935 Philip Moeller romantic melodrama ("A new Hepburn to marvel at..."; "Electric Hepburn... ablaze in gorgeous gowns... together with the screen's new romantic idol"; based on the story by Lester Cohen; about a famous orchestra conductor who has many girlfriends, but then he meets a beautiful young female composer, and he falls in love and marries her, but then she catches him with another woman and leaves him) starring Katharine Hepburn, Charles Boyer, John Beal, Jean Hersholt, and Sam Hardy. Note that Francis Lederer was originally the male lead in this movie, but during the filming of the first romantic scene, he complained that the director wanted to show his "bad side", and he was immediately fired and replaced by Boyer, a young French actor (and this was a big break for Boyer, in one of his first major roles, and he was billed as "the screen's new romantic idol")! Also note that the orchestra conductor was based on two real-life conductors of the period: Leopold Stokowski, who was well known for his rearrangements of music by Bach, Wagner and other composers; and Arturo Toscanini, who was notorious for insulting his musicians during rehearsals the way the orchestra conductor does in the film.

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. Prior to paperbacking, the poster was never folded. It had some enlarged pinholes around the edges (some in the edges of the image) and a few within the image, including one in the bridge of Boyer's nose and one in Hepburn's cheek, with a few others in the lower center of the poster. There was a 6" diagonal tear running into Boyer's cheek and some smudges and faint stains scattered in the image. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects. Also, the poster was slightly roughly handled, and there is now a crease in the top right blank corner (in both the poster and the paper backing) and also in the bottom blank corners, and there is tiny paper loss in the bottom right corner (but the image is not affected by the creases and tiny paper loss).
