Buck Privates RARE Abbott Costello Window Card Movie Poster


Original Vintage Old Classic Film Theater Movie Posters Abbott Costello Memorabilia Collectibles For Sale
Buck Privates 1941
Original Vintage Window Card Movie Poster  (14x22")
Starring Bud Abbott & Lou Costello



A First for CVtreasures and one of the MOST RARE of all the Abbott & Costello theatrical movie posters.    

Universal was near bankrupt when “Buck Privates” was released in 1941, and it was so successful it was credited with saving the studio from going Under!  Any paper from this WW2 era classic is Very Scarce as 99% of the movie posters were destroyed for the War effort or simply discarded,  leaving very little original movie relics from this most desirable Abbott & Costello classic from the very first year headlining their own feature films.   A legendary partnership that would continue for the next  15 years .

This colorful Ultra-Rare Abbott & Costello Window Card Movie Poster has terrific artwork of Bud and Lou and the Andrew Sisters

*Note: Based on our research there are only Two of these in existence!

What else is so exciting about this Window Card is it is the first we have ever seen that has the full date stamp at the top (April 1 & 2, 1941), which was a blank area reserved for theater owners to advertise their show dates & times.  Most of the time this top border was trimmed by collectors.  

Condition:   This Rare Treasures has plenty of vintage wear mostly on the border areas, but the main image area remains surprisingly NICE!    And unlike Most window cards, the top border has NOT been trimmed!
With no stains, tears, or missing pieces in the image area.   And amazing gorgeous bright colors for this 81+ year old poster !

A diamond in the rough you’re not likely to see again in this lifetime !
