    Dishonored (Paramount, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    Marie Kolverer (Marlene Dietrich) is the widow of a decorated Austrian war hero, now forced to sell herself to survive. She quickly finds her true calling as Spy X-27, however, as she uses her wiles to seduce and betray enemy officers such as the decorated Colonel von Hindau (Warner Oland). She meets her match, however, when she meets the dashing Colonel Kranau (Victor McLaglen), with whom she rapidly falls in love. Sacrificing herself for the Colonel, Marie allows her lover to escape, resulting in her subsequent conviction and execution for treason. Prior to McLaglen's screen debut in 1920's The Call of the Road, the 6'3" British actor made a name for himself as a professional prizefighter. He toured in circuses, vaudeville revues, and Wild West shows throughout the US, Australia, and South Africa, often offering to fight all comers. During World War I, he claims to have served with the Royal Irish Fusiliers, and as Provost Marshall for the city of Baghdad. Returning home after the war with the intention of resuming his prizefighting career, McLaglen made his first picture, which was well-received. After several years in British silents, he relocated to Hollywood, where he became one of the most popular male stars of the silent era. Unlike so many others, he survived the coming of sound, going on to enjoy a career that spanned nearly four decades. In this stunning stone litho one sheet, Dietrich is literally swept off her feet by the roguish McLaglen, an image bursting with color and power. In more than a decade of vintage movie poster auctions, Heritage has never before offered this exceedingly rare gem. Expert professional restoration has addressed tears in the director's name and the bottom right logo, a chip in the bottom border, one above Dietrich's head, and two in the lower left background. As well, there was approximately two inches of paper loss along the right side, including the white border, which has also been repaired. After restoration, these minor flaws are virtually invisible, making this a real treasure just waiting to serve as the cornerstone of some lucky collection. From the Berwick Discovery. Very Good- on Linen.
