Universal 1936 - Vintage original 36 x 14" (90 x 35 cm.) insert poster, USA. Carole Lombard, Preston Foster, Cesar Romero, Janet Beecher, dir: Walter Lang; Universal. Romantic comedy vehicle for Lombard in which she must choose between the wealthy conceited Foster (who really loves her) and an ambitious romantic playboy (Romero), all in a high society setting which Depression-era audiences loved. It took an army of writers to bring Faith Baldwin's novel "Spinster Dinner" (though actually a short story) to the screen; besides Herbert Fields there were Claude Binyon, Samuel Hoffenstein, Doris Malloy and Preston Sturges, and it was all told in 70 minutes (some believe the film was extensively edited as many of the character actors' roles all but disappear). This rarely seen poster is bright in color and offers a glamorous yet comedic pose of the very talented star. Unfolded, there is soiling to the blank white border, more so on both sides of the bottom third of the poster. There is creasing at the bottom right corner and there are four small edge tears, which are ½" to 1" (2.5 cm.), one near the bottom left edge side of the poster and three at the right edge of the poster. These are not major issues and this poster has brilliant colors -- and try finding another one unfolded. VERY GOOD.
