Description:
Ten Cents a Dance (Columbia, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
An early starring vehicle for Barbara Stanwyck based on a popular song by Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart, this pre-Code classic was directed by the great Lionel Barrymore. As Barbara O'Neill, Stanwyck plays a taxi dancer whose husband Eddie (Monroe Owsley) suspects her of cheating with wealthy playboy Bradley Carlton (Ricardo Cortez). Hurt and angry, Eddie uses his suspicions regarding his wife's infidelity as an excuse to indulge in a variety of sins, including gambling, adultery, and theft; standard fare in a pre-Code vehicle such as this. As such, the film stands as a glorious example of the pre-Code era of moviemaking, in which filmmakers were free to tackle such controversial subjects as adultery, casual sex, gangsters, birth control, rape, gambling, and more. By 1934, with the enforcement of the Motion Picture Production Code, such movies would be virtually eliminated from the silver screen, victims of a repressive and censorious review board that insisted on a whitewashed and sanitized view of American life. Due to their less inhibited, and less regulated, nature, pre-Code films, and the paper used to promote them, have long been favorites of classic movie fans. The stunning stone litho one sheet offered here, with its lush and vibrant colors and its stunning full-length portrait of a young and beautiful Barbara Stanwyck, is a lovely example of a poster released during this relatively brief but fruitful pre-Code period. In addition to its inherent beauty, it is also notable as one of only two copies known to exist in the entire world, a fact that should prove irresistible to serious vintage movie poster collectors. We note that prior to expert professional restoration, there were pinholes in the corners, tears in the middle background, chipping in the borders, and a small hole in the upper left with an accompanying tear. Additionally, approximately one quarter of an inch of missing white paper in the bottom border and a half inch of missing white paper in the top border has been replaced. The poster presents beautifully, and is an absolute stunner, sure to be the envy of all who see it. Place your bid now, and take this beauty home! From the Berwick Discovery. Fine+ on Linen.
