Description

The American Venus (Paramount, 1926). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
Now known to be a lost film, little remains but a few trailers from this Paramount big budget feature. What is most well known about this film today is it is the second film appearance of Louise Brooks, who was relatively unknown at the time. Brooks would go on to become one of the most iconic female stars of the late silent era. She crafted a personal style that left an indelible mark on 1920s popular culture that is still imitated today. With her bobbed pageboy hair and dark, exotic looks, she achieved a cult status rarely garnered by entertainers of that time. Her greatest fame would come after leaving the U.S. and starring in two German made films under director G.W. Pabst: Pandora's Box (1928) and Diary of a Lost Girl (1929). Remarkably, this gorgeous poster is perhaps the only known copy and only Brooks is featured in spectacular, full-length glory! Do not miss the opportunity to own the ultimate Louise Brooks poster, from a very early role. The piece has been beautifully and professionally restored to correct a 1" trim on the left vertical border and a 1-1/2" trim on the right vertical border. There was some fold wear with slight paper loss at a couple of the crossfolds and some separation. This priceless item from the silent age of cinema will be the crown jewel of any collection! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
