For the discerning, High End Collector of Museum Grade Movie Treasures

For the fist time in our 40 years collecting classic Hollywood treasures, we are excited to have discovered one of the most significant and important pieces we've ever encountered.   From one of the greatest cinematic masterpieces in film history.    And one of the Best movies I have  ever seen!

The Original vintage Title Card movie poster actually used in the theater  in 1940 to promote the epic film depicting the unimaginable struggles of the Great Depression "The Grapes of Wrath".  

Very good condition with card is in very good 100% UNrestored condition with nice bright preserved colors.  The only minor issue is the top and bottom blank border has been slightly trimmed .25" on top and bottom border only.  But only blank border area, no copyright text has been affected. .   This gem is stunning not only for its  artistic beauty but for its representation of a most critical time in American history and its spectacular cinematic portrayal of that consequential period.   This is one of the very rare cases where a really great book is turned into a really great movie! 

Note: This great Title Card (which we have never sold before) has a wonderful "line up" image of the stars in character (Not just the heads like the Style A half sheet), looking as people worn down by The Great Depression would surely pose in such a portrait!    Rare!  Another Title Card  sold at auction in July 2007 for $7767.

The Grapes of Wrath (20th Century Fox, 1940). Very Fine-. Trimmed Title Lobby Card (10.5" X 14") 
Nobel prize-winning author John Steinbeck's powerful novel about the devastating effects of the Depression and the nightmare of the dust bowl on a generation of Americans was brilliantly brought to the big screen by director John Ford. Henry Fonda turns in a career-making performance as a former prison inmate returning to his home in the dust storms of Oklahoma. His family has been evicted from their farm and must relocate to California for work and a better life. It's a harrowing tale of the homeless in the Great Depression and is beautifully conveyed on the ad campaign for the film.
From legendary director John Ford comes this enduring tale of the struggle of migrant dust bowl farmers setting out for California during the Great Depression. The quintessential adaptation of John Steinbeck's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, this epic drama of the indomitable human spirit features a defining performance by Henry Fonda as Tom Joad.  
John Ford created one of the great classics of the cinema in this searing portrayal of the Joad family's trek to California to escape poverty and persecution. Henry Fonda gives a brilliant performance as Tom Joad, along with Jane Darwell (who won an Academy Award for her performance), John Carradine, and a great supporting cast.
