Yankee Doodle Dandy, 1942
Original Vintage Half Sheet Movie Poster (22x28")
Starring James Cagney


Most beautiful poster for "Yankee Doodle Dandy"

Spectacular vintage half sheet movie poster.  In 1942 Warner Brothers reassessed two Half Sheet movie posters, a version A and B.  This is the more desirable Verison B.   Version A was just basically the same artwork as the one sheet, lacking all the terrific images of Cagney in various sceneries from the film.   As you can see from the enlargeable image above this vintage 80 year old half sheet is gorgeous and has a delightful array of Cagney scenes. 

Very Good 100% Original Unrestored condition with just expected fold lines, slight smudging and an attractive sepia toning (most all movie posters prior to 1980 were folded).   

NOTE:  The is an exciting First for Cvtreasures!   And the most gorgeous poster ever created to promote this 80 year old classic film

Yankee Doodle Dandy (Warner Bros., 1942). Folded, Fine+. Linen Finish Half Sheet (22" X 28"). Musical.
Famed director Michael Curtiz, the proverbial workhorse at Warner Brothers, put James Cagney's talents as a dancer to use in this musical revue of the life of George M. Cohan. The film was a huge sensation for the studio as Cohan's Broadway musicals were also extremely popular. When the film was released, it was shown privately to Cohan as he neared death. He loved it as much as his own productions and commented, "My God! What an act to follow!".   The Academy must have agreed with him and gave Cagney the Oscar for Best Actor.  One of the interesting and very nice aspects of this poster is that it was the last series of posters issued by Warner Brothers on their linen-finish paper.
Here is the hard to find half sheet for James Cagney's classic musical Yankee Doodle Dandy, based on the life of Broadway star George M. Cohan. Cagney turns in an incredible performance as the renowned entertainer, dancing up a storm. Michael Curtiz directs this film with Walter Huston and Joan Leslie co-starring.
Starring James Cagney, Joan Leslie, Walter Huston, Richard Whorf, Irene Manning, George Tobias, Rosemary DeCamp, and Jeanne Cagney. Directed by Michael Curtiz. An unrestored linen finish half sheet with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have edge and fold wear, pinholes, noticeable toning, and some stains or smudges including tape stains.

Note: Cvtreasures stamp Not on original poster
