Baby Face (Warner Brothers, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41").
The only year this sexy film could have been made was 1933, just before the Production Code was strictly enforced. The saga of the New York Censor Board's meddling is well known, but suffice it to say this great one sheet speaks volumes all by itself. Just look into the eyes of the young Barbara Stanwyck. The artist has absolutely captured the emotions of Lily 'Baby Face' Powers as she recedes into the safety of her mink collar. The film got a bad reputation in its initial release and was never reissued due to its subject matter but has been revived as a cult classic by Turner Classic Movies. With only a mere handful of extant posters available from this title, it was a joy to find one in this high grade original condition. There are only top corner pinholes, small pinpoint fold separations, and some very light wrinkles in the bottom section. Luckily the poster must have been displayed only in an indoors theatre, for the colors are exceptionally fresh and glowing. Very Fine.
