    Description

    I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (Warner Brothers, 1932). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    A controversial film when it was released, I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang opened the nation's eyes to the brutality of the chain gang system in the Deep South. Paul Muni turned in an Academy Award-nominated performance as a down-on-his-luck WWI veteran who gets caught up in a robbery and is wrongfully sentenced to ten years on a chain gang. The film, which garnered a Best Picture nomination, shocked many with its depiction of cruelty and is credited with helping to bring reform to the prison system. The lobby card shows a tear from the right border into the background, small tears in the other borders, pinholes and creasing in the borders, and paper tape on the verso at the borders. Fine/Very Fine.
