Original Vintage Theatrical Folded Insert Movie Poster (measures 14" x 36") (Learn More)

Edna Ferber's Come and Get It, the 1936 Howard Hawks & William Wyler romantic love triangle family relationship melodrama ("It's tough.... It's rough....! No punches pulled...!"; "Again Edna Ferber's pen writes with the sweep of 'Cimarron' and the grandeur of 'Show Boat'"; "From the famous novel by Edna Ferber"; about an aspiring businessman who does not marry the girl he loves, because he is set on becoming a major success, and his best friend marries the girl instead; he marries a different woman and has two kids with her, a boy and a girl, and when they grow up, he goes back to see his old friend and the woman he loved; he discovers that the woman died, but the friend had a daughter with her, and she is a duplicate to the woman, and of course, the now old man falls in love with her, but pretends solely to have a "fatherly" interest in her; much more happens, including his own son falling in love with the daughter, and it is an extremely strange movie!) starring Edward Arnold, Joel McCrea, Frances Farmer, Walter Brennan (winner of the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film), Andrea Leeds, and Mady Christians. Note that Frances Farmer plays the dual role of both the lost love of Edward Arnold, and the daughter of that woman, grown up. She does an incredible job, because she makes the two women seem completely different, and you have no trouble believing that they are not the same person. Also note that director Howard Hawks wanted to change the story from the Ferber source novel, and Sam Goldwyn, the producer, strongly disagreed, and they battled over it, and ultimately, Hawks was fired, near the end of filming. Goldwyn brought in William Wyler and it is thought that Wyler directed the last 30 minutes of the movie, but no one is too sure!

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. there was a 3" clean tear in the lower left of the poster going through the "CO" of "COME" that was repaired with tape from the back; there was 1" of separation at the right of the middle and bottom foldlines that were repaired with tape from the back; there was 2" of separation at the left of the top and bottom foldlines that was repaired with tape from the back; there are two 1/2" tears in the bottom border, one of which was repaired with tape from the back; there is tiny surface paper loss on the foldlines; there is tiny paper loss in the right blank corners; there are a few small tears, creases, and smudges around the edges of the poster; there are staple holes in the center of the top and bottom of the poster and a pinhole in the "E" of "COME"; The poster is in better condition than the above makes it sound! Its defects are mostly relatively minor and would vanish if it were restored and the poster would look wonderful (and would not need hardly any inpainting, mostly just mending, flattening, and removal of smudges)!
