Description

The Belle of Broadway (Columbia, 1926). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
Aging stage star Mme. DuBarry (Edith Yorke) will do anything to recapture her former fame and glory, including hatching a scheme to have pretty young ingenue Marie Duval (Betty Compson), a dead ringer for DuBarry in her younger days, impersonate the older actress. Compson had a substantial Hollywood career, appearing in more than 200 films between 1915 and 1948. She appeared opposite Lon Chaney in The Miracle Man (1919), and received a Best Actress Academy Award nomination for her role in The Barker (1928). After retiring from pictures, she became a successful businesswoman until her death in 1974. This striking stone litho one sheet had tears in the top right and left corners, tears in the right border, and fold wear, but all these minor issues have been addressed by professional restoration, making it look as good as new. A beautiful poster, this is one that you will be proud to own. Very Fine on Linen. *****
