    Carmen (Svenska Filmskompaniet, 1918). Folded, Very Fine. Swedish Linocut One Sheet (23.5" X 35").
    Starring Pola Negri in the the title role, Carmen is one of the earliest film adaptations of Prosper Mérimée's famous novel, and the first to come from Germany. This Swedish Linocut poster for the film offers a wonderfully stylized portrayal of Negri as Carmen, a beguiling and tragic character. The film was later released in the United Kingdom and the United States in a recut version titled Gypsy Blood, but this poster, offered here for the first time at Heritage, comes from the film's first release in Sweden. The poster displays light edge and fold wear, mild creases, minute tears, and faint smudges.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
