American Three Sheet 41" x 81"

After the stunning success of "Dead End," Jack Warner bought out the Dead End Kids contract from Sam Goldwyn and set about finding a project to feature his new gang. He dusted off the script from James Cagney's "Mayor of Hell," made a few changes and created "Crime School" with Humphrey Bogart in the Cagney role. This poster has minor edge tears, some small tears and light stains in the second "O" in School. There was a two-inch tear at the edge near the "L" and light fold separations. The bottom panel of the three sheet had a 1" x 5" piece out of the upper left yellow background that was professionally repaired during the linen-backing process. This is the only known copy of this three sheet in existance!
