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

The Last of Mrs. Cheyney, the 1937 Richard Boleslawski, Dorothy Arzner, & George Fitzmaurice romantic love triangle society jewel thieves crime comedy ("The new star-spangled M-G-M sensation!"; "MGM's Star-Spangled Sensations"; "From the play by Frederick Lonsdale"; partially written by Samson Raphaelson, who wrote the very similar "Trouble in Paradise", except with the gender of the lead characters reversed; about a rich American widow who gets involved in English society, and two upper class Englishmen pursue her, but then jewelry starts going missing, and they suspect the widow may not be what she represented herself to be!) starring Joan Crawford (in the title role as Mrs. Fay Cheyney), William Powell, Robert Montgomery, Frank Morgan, Nigel Bruce, and Jessie Ralph. Note that Dorothy Arzner was a director from the 1920s to the 1940s, and she was the only woman director during the "Golden Age" of Hollywood ('20s to '40s) and she was the first woman to join the Directors Guild of America. Arzner was a lesbian at a time when almost no females openly were, and she was surprisingly open about it, often dressing in "men's clothes" and wearing her hair short. She made many "women's movies" and movies with a "feminist" theme. After making "First Comes Courage" in 1943, she made training films for the U.S. Army WACs, and she never returned to making Hollywood movies, becoming a film teacher of directing and screenwriting, teaching at UCLA until her passing in 1979.

Important Added Info: Note that this insert is extremely rare. We have never auctioned it before!

Note that this item needs to be shipped in an oversized flat package. Most of these items absolutely can only be sent in flat packages, and could not possibly be rolled into a tube. Some of them might SEEM like they could be rolled in a tube, like a half-sheet, but they can't. The reason these items are in this auction is specifically because they CAN'T be rolled (because rolling any of them would damage them, even if they somehow can be rolled). So please bear in mind that this item must be sent in a LARGE flat package (the size of the package will depend on the size of the item when ready for shipping), and bear this added expense in mind before placing a bid on it.

Condition: fair. The poster was apparently in pretty good condition except for tape stains in the top and bottom of the left and right borders, prior to being glued to a heavy board. Unfortunately, it was displayed, and the reds in the poster changed to an orange color. The poster can still be displayed as it is, but certainly, bear in mind its considerable defects before placing a bid.
