Boys Town (1938)
Film: Boys Town (1938) Year poster printed: 1938 Country: United States Size: 27 in x 41 in (69 cm x 104 cm) (plus small linen border)
This is an original, linen-backed one-sheet movie poster from 1938 for Boys Town starring Spencer Tracy, Mickey Rooney, Henry Hull, Leslie Fenton, Gene Reynolds and Edward Norris. Norman Taurog directed the classic film.
The Style C poster measures 27” x 41” and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. Prior to linen-backing the poster was in good to very good condition with minor to moderate fold wear, some darkening along the left edge of the poster, and pinholes from theatrical display. The poster was folded at the time of printing but the folds are much less noticeable after linen-backing. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photo as this is the exact poster you are buying. The small, black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1938 to promote the initial theatrical release of Boys Town, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
