MGM Original One-Sheet Poster for the Gottfried Reinhardt melodrama INVITATION (1952) starring Van Johnson, Dorothy McGuire, Ruth Roman and Louis Calhern. This soap was a money loser for MGM but the score by Bronislau Kaper generated a tune that has become beloved of jazz musicians. So the lesson is that something good can come from most anything. Van Johnson has been persuaded to marry Dorothy McGuire by her wealthy father. The McGuire character had rheumatic fever as a child and is not expected to live long. However, she has a big purse. You get it. How MGM manages to make this into a happy ending is convoluted.
