An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Window Card Movie Poster (WC; measures 14" x 22") (Learn More)

The Scarlet Pimpernel, the 1934 (released in the U.S. in 1935) Harold Young English historical French Revolution romantic disguised hero adventure comedy ("The Scarlet Pimpernel who was he... what was his strange power?"; produced by Alexander Korda) starring Leslie Howard (in the title role as Sir Percy Blakeney/The Scarlet Pimpernel), Merle Oberon, Raymond Massey, Nigel Bruce, Bramwell Fletcher, and Anthony Bushell. Note that this movie was based on the 1905 book by Baroness Emmuska Orczy, and the lead character is a "mild-mannered" English aristocrat by day, who by night poses as "The Scarlet Pimpernel", a dashing hero who rescues victims of the French Revolution, and not even his wife knows his "secret identity"! It seems quite likely that Joe Simon and Jerry Schuster at least partly based their Superman character on this character, given the huge similarities between them (except the Scarlet Pimpernel had no super powers!).

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

Condition: fine. There is slight darkening in the borders, but otherwise, the card is in really wonderful condition. At one time, the card was attached to a frame with four tiny pieces of archival tape from the back (two on the back of the top border and two on the back of the bottom border), but the card has never had any restoration.
