Comete Blonde - BLONDE COMET, USA 1941 - Original French Poster - Motor Racing, Indianapolis, Miller
This beautiful, original stone litho movie poster has been linen backed for conservation purposes and is in superb condition.
With the artist's (Monagasque, Albert Jorio) rendition of the Miller, leaping off the page and the wonderful portrait of Virginia Vale, this is one of the most spectacular motor-racing movie posters we've ever had in the Drivepast collection.
Thanks to Les Adams on IDMb for this synopsis of the movie:
" Beverly Blake, the 'Blonde Comet," and the daughter of a tire-manufacturer, gets behind the wheel of a race-car, and is soon tearing up the tracks and winning races in Italy, France and Germany (obviously prior to 1938 when those countries were no longer running international car races in Europe.) She comes back to race on American tracks. She meets Jim Flynn, another race-driver, and a rivalry is created, along with a romance. Beverly gives up her chance to win THE BIG RACE by letting Jim race her car and he wins. His win also means a triumph for the racing-car carburetor he has invented and also for the tires manufactured by her father. It may have been somewhat of a setback for Women's Liberation, though."
