Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) title lobby card, USA. Nina Mae McKinney, Jack Carter, Ida Jones, Hamtree Harrington, dir: Arthur H. Leonard; Sack Amusement.

Vintage original 10 x 13 " (27 x 34 cm.) lobby card, France. Hedy Lamarr, Aribert Mog, Zvonimir Rogoz, dir: Gustav Machaty; Elektafilm. Highly poetic and lyrical Czech/Austrian film which resulted in the notice of Hedy Keisler to world audiences. Though she had made several films before, she would not make another for five years. In that film, ALGIERS, and renamed Hedy Lamarr, she became an American star -- and audiences wanted to see her notorious European film.

It had been banned in the United States in 1935, and Lamarr campaigned to never have it shown again. Somehow, American art...

FAITHLESS (1932)
FAITHLESS (1932) $350.00

Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Tallulah Bankhead, Robert Montgomery, Hugh Hubert, dir: Harry Beaumont; MGM.

After a brief stint in silent films, the theatre world was charmed by the voice and manner of Tallulah Bankhead; a return to film with talkies, however, did not bring her any further success. She starred in several soap opera melodramas, this one for MGM, plush with Deco furnishings and Adrian costumes. Neither MGM, nor her character Carol Morgan, seemed to be aware there was a depression on as she romped from man to man in this Pre-Code melodrama.

One of the most famous groundbreaking films of all time, and one of the films which broke down the walls of the legion of decency Production Code, which had influenced the way films had been made for more than 30 years. It was the theme and the suggestion which had the office up in arms. Though there was no nudity, the film broke many taboos and made way for the...
