An Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked Style A Half-Sheet Movie Poster (1/2sh; measures 22" x 28") (Learn More)

Two Girls and a Sailor, the 1944 Richard Thorpe World War II (WWII) all-star war-time Navy Naval sailor military romantic love triangle comedy musical ("MGM's Ship-Shapely Musical"; "Gals! Gayety! Glamour! And gobs of fun!") starring Van Johnson, June Allyson, Gloria DeHaven, Jose Iturbi, Jimmy Durante, Gracie Allen, Lena Horne, Harry James, Helen Forrest (Harry James & Helen Forrest billed as "Harry James and His Music Makers with Helen Forrest"), Xavier Cugat, Lina Romay (Xavier Cugat & Lina Romay billed as "Xavier Cugat & his Orchestra with Lina Romay"), Tom Drake, Henry Stephenson, Henry O'Neill, Ben Blue, Carlos Ramirez, Frank Sully, Albert Coates, Donald Meek, Amparo Novarro, Virginia O'Brien, the Wilde Twins, and Ava Gardner (this was one of her early uncredited roles; surprisingly, she had many of them before she was "discovered"). Note that at this time, Paramount had created several "all-star" movies featuring dozens of their top stars, and this MGM musical was similar, except that their very top stars were not present (mostly because they were off in the military!).

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this half-sheet pictures Lena Horne in the bottom right, Harry James standing with his trumpet in the middle left, and Xavier Cugat and Jimmy Durante in the middle right! Also note that this poster has been paperbacked. What is paperbacking? This means the poster was backed onto a paper backing (acid-free), that is similar in feel to that of the original poster (except somewhat heavier). It is a similar process to linenbacking, except that most collectors use linenbacking for one-sheets and paperbacking for half-sheets, inserts, window cards, and lobby cards.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster was never folded. It had some very minor border wear and a few faint scuffs and smudges in the image. Overall, the poster was in very good to fine condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
