    Description

    Willard-Dempsey 1939 Fight Film Poster A spectacular 3 sheet poster for the fight film, "The Birth Of A Champion" from the Willard-Dempsey fight of July 4, 1919 in which Jack Dempsey emerged as heavyweight champion of the world. This poster has been professionally linen backed for preservation. There's some minor restoration evident, but overall the poster is in excellent condition. Released in 1939, the first year fight films could be legally transported across state lines. A very seldom seen poster, especially in this large format size.
