    Description

    I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang (Warner Brothers, 1932). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Paul Muni delivers one of his best screen appearances as James Allen, a man with dreams of becoming an architect, who suddenly finds himself falsely convicted of robbery and sentenced to ten years on a chain gang. The novel upon which this film was based was so influential that it led to the abolishment of the chain gang system of punishment in US prisons. This dramatic card depicts one of the gruesome tortures Muni is forced to endure. The card has two pinholes in the center of the background, just under the film's title. This is a rare offering from one of the best, and most important, pictures of the 1930s. Near Mint-.
