An Original Vintage Theatrical Folded Style B Three-Sheet Movie Poster (3sh; measures 41" x 81" [104 x 206 cm]) (Learn More)

The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo, the 1935 Stephen Roberts Monaco romantic gambling casino comedy melodrama ("From the play by Ilia Surgutchoff and Frederick Albert Swann"; very loosely based on a true story; produced by Darryl F. Zanuck) starring Ronald Colman, Joan Bennett, Colin Clive, Nigel Bruce, Frank Reicher, Montagu Love, and Maurice Cass. Note that the "system" used by the man that actually "broke the bank" was simply a variation on continually doubling your bet on an even money proposition until you finally win, and then starting over again at one unit! Of course, the fatal "flaw" to this system is that eventually you run into an amazingly bad streak and then you either hit the casino limit, or you run out of money, or both!

Important Added Info: Note that first release large posters from this movie are extremely rare. We have never before auctioned a three-sheet from this movie before we were consigned this poster, and we have also never auctioned a six-sheet! Note that this is one of an amazing find of seven similar three-sheets that were found in the home of a man who worked at a movie theater in the mid 1930s, and he took these posters home with him and they sat undisturbed in his house ever since! All of these three-sheets are incredibly rare. We are also auctioning four other three-sheets that also came from this amazing find, in four separate auctions, but those four were folded very differently, and they measure approximately 21" x 21" when folded, and three of the four of those are kraftbacked, but just like the seven that were folded the other way, they are also incredibly rare. This may be your only opportunity to obtain this poster (or any of the other three-sheets, which are being auctioned in separate auctions). Also note that this poster was folded oddly, and it now measures approximately 11" x 20", so it will need to be sent in a larger than normal flat package that measures approximately 13" x 22", so bear this in mind before bidding. Also note that this three-sheet was printed in 2 sections designed to overlap. Also note that the theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces).

Condition: good to very good. The theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces). There are many creases and some small tears along parts of the folds, with some tiny paper loss at some crossfolds. There are pinholes, creases, and small tears around the edges.
