Object of the Day: A Poster from “The Petrified Forest”

Sunday, May 22, 2011


In the 1990’s, Warner Brothers had a chain of stores in malls around the U.S. which, when originally opened, carried reproductions of items from the classic Warner Brothers films. Of course, as is often the case here, the stores went the way of Disney and dumbed themselves down—featuring cartoon plush toys and a wide assortment of goofy stuff. I don’t think they exist any longer.

However, this reproduction of a movie card from 1936’s “The Petrified Forest” starring Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart and Leslie Howard was among the many classic film souvenirs originally offered.

You’ll learn more about this wonderful film in this week’s “Sunday Viewing” article. ads
