This rare vintage original poster was issued by the War Activities Committee of the Motion Picture Industry to support the 4th War Loan Drive which ran from January 18 to February 15, 1944. This is a large poster measuring 60” x 40” with artwork that features a soldier charging forward with bayonet and rifle as a raucous crowd of moviegoers cheers him on from behind. The lower margin indicates “Distributed and Exhibited Under Auspices of the War Activities Committee, Motion Picture Industry – in cooperation with the War Finance Committee United States Treasury.”
The War Activities Committee of the Motion Picture Industry produced short propaganda films, organized war bond drives at movie theaters and helped to make movie stars available for various campaigns in support of the war effort.
This vintage original poster is fully complete and shows some toning from age and moderate handling wear. There poster has some small areas of separation where the fold lines come together, slight ghosting in areas and there is a short tear without loss of about two inches on the left edge and another v shaped closed tear without loss of about an inch near the left edge as well as a couple pinholes on the top edge. Basic linen backing could get this one looking almost like new. This poster was issued folded and ships that way.
