1940 Window Cleaners (Donald Duck) Linen-Backed One-Sheet Movie Poster
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,000
One-sheet movie poster (27 x 41 inches) issued for the 1940 RKO Radio Pictures release Window Cleaners, starring Donald Duck. The colorful graphics feature a large image of Donald standing alongside a less-than-happy Pluto. As the title indicates, this romp features Donald taking a job as a window cleaner, with Pluto recruited as his pail-carrying assistant. As usual, things begin to go awry when Donald has a run in with a pesky bee. The first Donald Duck cartoon short was produced in December 1937, making this an extremely early and scarce Donald Duck one-sheet (we have only seen one other example at auction). The poster is linen-backed and has benefitted from professional restoration in repair of a few corner and interior tears. Accompanied by a COA from MPgrading, which has graded the poster VERY FINE- 8 RG (Restored Grade). SOLD FOR $3,000
