(MGM, 1936) A rare one of a kind Meloy Brothers poster for "Wife Vs. Secretary" starring Clark Gable, Myrna Loy, Jean Harlow, and Jimmy Stewart in an early role. In 1935 and 1936, the Meloy Bros. Inc. produced one of a kind, hand painted 40"x60" posters for theaters throughout the Midwest. Using an enlarged photo printed to heavyweight board, each one is individually colored with all text hand-painted. Very few of these survive, but when more than one for the same title exist, they have different versions of clothing colors, and even font styles, sizes, and placement. Measuring 40"x60", the poster is in good condition, with light wear including small scratches and chipping overall, and edge wear particularly at corners.
