Description



Presented is a half-sheet movie poster for Roy Del Ruth’s The Babe Ruth Story. Produced in 1948, the sheet displays the likeness of William Bendix portraying Babe Ruth in the classic film. Measuring approximately 27-1/2x21-1/2 the poster displays the corresponding back-stampings noting its official production and association to the film. While toning, four strips of back tape, edge wear and a tear down the middle relegate the poster to the lower grades, it remains an original rendering of the movie and an ideal candidate for professional restoration.
