An Original Vintage Theatrical 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

Holiday Affair, the classic 1949 Don Hartman romantic love triangle Christmas holiday family comedy ("'Baby, you're just what I want for Christmas!'"; "Here's a romantic Yule-tide treat that'll take your heart for a merry sleigh ride - Mitchum playing 'Santa' to a lovely young widow! And wait'll he finds out the mistletoe's loaded!"; "A doll that says 'Yes Darling' That's what Robert Mitchum and Wendell Corey want for Christmas... but Janet Leigh hands them a shock that lasts right through New Year's Eve!"; "Aah, that Mitchum's a softie... Always kissin' girls!"; "...and it's my girl he's kissin'!"; "Mitchum's Latest!"; "It happens in December...but it's hotter than July!"; "Mitchum in a new king of role"; if you want to know what is missing in modern movies, see this one!) starring Robert Mitchum, Janet Leigh, Wendell Corey, Gordon Gebert, Griff Barnett, and Harry Morgan. Note that this film had it's 1949 premiere in New York on November 23rd, and a wide release on December 24th. The plot was a romantic comedy set during the Christmas season, and U.S. movie paper from this first release was lighthearted in nature and featured the tagline "Baby, you're just what I want for Christmas!". However, it did not do very well at the box office, and to recoup their losses, RKO started a new campaign in July of 1950 while the movie was still in it's first release. The new campaign featured the tagline "It happens in December... but it is hotter in July", and the art on posters was sexier with a gritty noir-ish tone. RKO went all out on this new campaign, and created all new posters, including six and twenty-four sheets, lobby cards, inserts, 11x14 stills, and more. Posters from the new campaign are much more rare than the initial campaign!

Important Added Info: Note that it is extremely likely that this is a "key book" still, and it is virtually a certainty that the punch holes were put there by the studio at the time the still was created, so they are not a defect.

Condition: very good to fine.
