    Description

    The Sign of the Cross (Paramount, 1932). Midget Window Card (8" X 14"). The third film in Cecil B. DeMille's biblical trilogy, following The Ten Commandments (1923) and The King of Kings (1927), this story of Nero and the fall of Rome was an epic in every sense of the word. Starring Claudette Colbert as the sinful Poppaea, Charles Laughton as the hedonistic Nero, and Fredric March as Marcus Superbus, the prefect of Rome, this pre-Code picture was filmed with all the spectacle and pageantry DeMille could muster. As a result, some of the more controversial scenes - those that featured explicit sexuality or violence - were cut by the Hays office upon the film's 1944 rerelease. This superb midget window card, featuring a beautiful scene of a Roman coliseum, is in exceptional condition, looking every bit as gorgeous as the day it was first printed. Don't let this one pass you by. From the Collection of Denver Sherry. Near Mint/Mint.
