Fashions of 1934



Fashions of 1934 (Warner Brothers, 1934), half sheet movie poster at Heritage Auctions:
This stunning half sheet is a sight to behold and will add extra sparkle to any collection. Fashions of 1934 is a charming musical bubbling over with shimmying Busby Berkeley showgirls, and stars William Powell as Sherwood Nash, a swindler who moves to Paris to work his cons in the fashion racket. Bette Davis is both his accomplice and love interest, Lynn. As lavish as production itself, this gorgeous art deco poster dazzles. It has not been folded and only minor touch up was needed to address a tear and chip in the top border, a paper lift in the bottom right image area, and there is a bottom left corner bend. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.

Great poster, and Fashions of 1934 is a great little movie. For anyone who loves the design, the clothes and just the whole style of the period it's a must-see.
