The Lady Eve, the classic 1941 Preston Sturges romantic gambling con man idle rich mistaken identity screwball comedy ("Barbara Stanwyck has Henry Fonda Bewitched and Bewildered in The Lady Eve"; "Barbara's Got Henry Falling For Her!..."; "Oops! There He Goes Again!"; "He Down For The Third Time..."; "Right into Barbara's arms... she's got him now - and does he love it!"; "Another Preston Sturges Hit!"; "This miss's kiss is packed with blisses! Should I run or make her Mrs.? Trouble is. She reminisces. What a dizzy Eden this is!"; "Screenplay based on a story by Monckton Hoffe"; "Written and directed by Preston Sturges"; about a nerdy anthropologist on an ocean liner voyage, who gets swindled by an old gambler/cheat and his beautiful daughter, and later, she tries to do it again by impersonating a completely different woman, but he is sure she is the woman he met before) starring Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, Eugene Pallette, Martha O'Driscoll, William Demarest, Eric Blore, Janet Beecher, Melville Cooper, and Robert Greig. Note that the credit "Screenplay based on a story by Monckton Hoffe" sounds reminiscent of a W.C. Fields credit for himself under a wacky pseudonym, but actually, Monckton Hoffe is a real man, who was an Irish playwright, who worked in Hollywood mostly in the late 1920s through the early 1940s, but "The Lady Eve" is far and away his most famous credit!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good. The poster is linenbacked; prior to restoration the poster had tiny paper loss in each crossfold and tears and smudges down the vertical foldline; there were creases and smudges along the other foldlines and some smudges in the solid background areas; there were some holes, tears, creases, and smudges in the blank borders; the person who restored the poster put new paper over much of the blank borders (it was very expertly done and most people would not realize it unless it was specifically shown to them) and the image area has had expert restoration to correct the above described defects; Overall, this poster has had restoration on all the folds and in the borders, and you can see evidence of the restoration from close up; the restoration was very expertly done and the poster looks quite nice, and I would think most collectors would be happy to display it on their wall.
