Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, the classic 1948 H.C. Potter home remodeling architecture living-in-the-city-vs-living-in-the-country comedy ("The nuttiest birds live in this house!"; "Cary's burnin', he's afraid his dream house den will have a built-in wolf"; "Myrna's yearnin' for a dream house with all modern conveniences including two men"; "Melvyn's turnin', He's a 'good friend' in wolf's clothing."; "Looks like the Blandings will have no heating problem."; about a family building their own home and the disasters that befall them) starring Cary Grant (in the title role as "Mr. Blandings"), Myrna Loy ("Mrs. Blandings"), Melvyn Douglas ("and good [?] friend"), Reginald Denny, Sharyn Moffett, Connie Marshall, Louise Beavers, Ian Wolfe, and Will Wright. Perhaps RKO was afraid that this movie would not find an audience (just being about a couple building their own house), so they made posters that presented it like it was a romantic love triangle, and even referred to Melvyn Douglas as "a good friend in wolf's clothing", when actually, there was no triangle at all! They needn't have worried, because the movie was very clever and proved to be very successful!

Important Added Info: Note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: very good to fine. the poster has five horizontal folds; there are uneven light black dots in the white background area at top, but this appears to be the way the poster was printed, and not any sort of defect; there are two creases in Cary Grant's chest; overall, the poster is in really nice condition
