Weekly Movie Poster Auction Format Change

Our Weekly Movie Poster auctions will close with a live auction on HA.com's proprietary platform, Heritage Live!, beginning with the auction that ends Sunday, April 13. Each lot will now be offered one at a time, in lot number order, in a live auction beginning at 8:00 PM CT; with live bidders on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. Bidders in our previous Signature auctions will recognize the format as it is the same platform utilized by live Internet bidders at the time of the auction sessions. There will be no change in how bidders place their secret maximum bids during the week the auction is open on the Heritage Auctions website. Once bidding on the Heritage website ends, 2 hours before the live session starts, bidders will still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live! All existing bids will compete with any live bidding during the Heritage Live! auction. Each lot will open, request live bids, and then close when the bidding is finished.

You will be able to get to the Heritage Live! bidding software from many pages on the website, including the home page, each lot page, the auction home page, MyBids, and MyTrackedLots. For more information about Heritage Live, please visit HA.com/live. If you have any questions regarding this exciting new development, please contact Grey Smith at 1-800-872-6467 x1367.

Description:
The Lady Who Dared (Warner Brothers, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
South American diamond smuggler Jack Norton (Conway Tearle) has a problem: he's been strong-armed into obtaining compromising photos of Margaret Townsend (Billie Dove), the neglected wife of American diplomat Charles Townsend (Sidney Blackmer). Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, but Norton soon discovers that he's fallen in love with his target! This picture was intended as a "comeback" vehicle for silent film starlet Billie Dove, whose popularity at the height of her career rivaled that of Mary Pickford, Marion Davies, and Clara Bow. Originally a teen model, she was discovered by Flo Ziegfeld, and soon gained a spot in his famous Ziegfeld Follies Revue. In 1926, she appeared opposite Douglas Fairbanks Sr. in The Black Pirate, and starred in The American Beauty in 1927. Dove shared a three year relationship with billionaire Howard Hughes, and was an accomplished poet, pilot, and painter. In 1932, while still popular with movie-going audiences, Dove retired, never to return to the screen save but for a brief cameo in 1962's Diamond Head. She passed away in 1997. The striking one sheet offered here, with its stunning image of Dove, is truly breathtaking. With deep, rich color, this stone litho beauty is a true gem. Professional restoration has addressed tears in the upper right, and a hole and tear that extends into the artwork in the lower left. As well, the borders have been retouched and about three quarters of an inch of missing paper has been replaced in the top border. As a result of the expertly performed restoration, these minor flaws are virtually undetectable, making this a glorious poster to own and display. From the Berwick Discovery. Fine on Linen.
