Vintage original 36 x 14" (91 x 36 cm.) insert poster, USA. Rock Hudson, Jane Wyman, dir: Douglas Sirk; Universal. One of Douglas Sirk's greatest melodramas, the story of an unlikely romantic pairing between a prosperous widow with a handsome younger gardener who reads Thoreau -- and the discord which ensues, because neither the lady's family nor friends can accept either the difference in social class or in age.

A massively influential film, which was directly remade both by Fassbinder (All Fear Eats the Soul) and Toddy Haynes (Far from Heaven). Douglas Sirk was one of Rock Hudson's mentors during his...

Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Marlene Dietrich, Sam Jaffe, John Loder, C. Aubrey Smith, Gavin Gordon, dir: Josef von Sternberg; Paramount. One of the finest lobby cards for one of film history's most truly bizarre movies. Perhaps this was Sternberg's answer for Dietrich to her great competitor Greta Garbo's Queen Christina. While that film attempted to tell an accurate historical account of a historic queen, this film was a major experiment in style.

The basis was the story of Princess Sophia of Germany who is taken to Russia to marry half wit Grand Duke...
