An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Movie Window Card (WC; measures 14" x 22" [36 x 56 cm]) (Learn More)

Babes in Toyland, the 1934 Gus Meins & Charles Rogers musical fantasy fairy tale comedy ("90 minutes of hilarious laughter and wonderful music!"; "1 1/2 hours of joy in the funniest picture ever made!"; "Victor Herbert's immortal, musical extravaganza"; "Their biggest full length comedy success"; based on the Victor Herbert & Glen McDonough operetta) starring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy (Laurel and Hardy), Virginia Karns, Charlotte Henry, Felix Knight, William Burress, and Darla Hood (the future Our Gang member, when she was just 2 1/2 years old!). Note that this classic Laurel & Hardy was re-titled "March of the Wooden Soldiers" in 1950, and again re-titled (for unknown reasons!) "Revenge is Sweet" in the 1960s, with the earlier re-release title on the poster, rather than the original title!

Artist: Al Hirschfeld
Important Added Info: Note that we have only previously auctioned two examples of this window card, one 20 years ago, which sold for $2,070, and one earlier this year, which sold for $2,611! Also note that this window card was never folded. Often window cards would be folded across the middle, because that would make them 11" x 14", and they could then be sent with standard folded posters. Most collectors put an added value on a window card that has never been folded.

Condition: fair to good. The poster has paper loss in the bottom left corner, slightly affecting the first "B" of the title and the "CH" of "CHARLOTTE". There is surface paper loss in that same area, in Hardy's shoulder, arm, and hand, and also affecting the word "BABES" and the paintbrush, with a little bit below it, and also in the "ARLO" of "CHARLOTTE". There is an enlarged nail hole in the bottom right corner and small paper loss and a tear in the right border, with a scuff mark in the "D" of "HARDY". There is paper loss in the right of the top play dates area and small paper loss in the top left corner. Obviously, this card has really significant defects, but we can provide the winner of the card (and only the winner) with a high quality scan of a complete card that will greatly aid in the restoration. Please bear in mind the card's defects and the cost of restoration before placing a bid on it.
