gallery Bing Sings! Just For You (1952) US 1/2 Sht

Just For You is an American musical starring the ever popular Bing Crosby and Jane Wyman. Released in 1952, it had it’s New York premiere at the Capitol Theater on Oct. 8, 1952. With over seven musical numbers to it’s credit, Just For You was met with mixed reviews; while the New York Times was not impressed, Variety gave it a more positive review. Two years later, Crosby would team up with Danny Kaye in White Christmas.

This US Half Sheet measures 22″x 28″ and came to me with a few flaws that could easily be rectified through the linenbacking process. It contained quite a few wrinkled areas along the border, and heavy fold wear, as Half Sheets are of thicker paper, they tend to show more fold wear. During the wash process, including deacidification and bleaching, two major areas, about the size of a quarter and dime lost surface paper. These issues would have to be addressed during the restoration phase. What resulted, was a wonderful looking poster from one of Hollywood’s most entertaining stars.
