    Description

    The Sin of Nora Moran (Majestic, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41") Alberto Vargas Artwork.
    Zita Johann, Hungarian born actress, made her screen debut in D.W. Griffith's last film, The Struggle; however, her most memorable role was as the object of Boris Karloff's desire in The Mummy. She only had eight screen credits to her name, preferring to act on stage rather than in front of a camera, but her performance in this poverty row picture evoked a passion that displayed the depth of her abilities. Artist Alberto Vargas skillfully captures her expressive despair as a woman condemned to die for a crime she did not commit, a portrait as gorgeous as it is psychological. Very few posters from this film have made it into our auctions, making this an exciting opportunity for classic collectors. This one sheet looks stunning after professional restoration addressed tears and pinholes in the interior. Paper loss along the borders into the black background has been replaced, including "N" of "Moran" and the distributor logo. Despite these issues, Vargas' breathtaking stone litho illustration is completely intact. Good/Very Good on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
