DESCRIPTION: Here’s a handsome, original 1942 8" x 10" Dixie Ice Cream premium of legendary screen star, CARY GRANT. Dixie premiums were issued until 1953 and featured a full color litho portrait of movie stars, sports figures or screen cowboy heroes on one side and a brief biography on the reverse side, along with photos or a list of the star’s latest films. This one features four scenes of Grant from Alfred Hitchcock’s SUSPICION. Dixie premiums could only be obtained by an exchanging a folder of 12-14 (the number varied) circular Dixie Ice Cream lids (with a celebrity photo on one side) for one of these beautiful portraits. 1942-1945 Dixie premiums are scarce due to wartime paper restrictions.
CONDITION: Superb VERY FINE condition with faint edge and border wear. Rich, vibrant color. A beautiful addition to any Dixie Premium collection!!
