DescriptionA Sainted Devil (Paramount, 1924). Rolled, Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
This rare half sheet poster for Rudolph Valentino's A Sainted Devil is being offered for the first time at Heritage. Valentino plays an Argentinean whose bride-to-be is abducted by his jealous ex-girlfriend's bandit accomplice. Now a lost film, only a few posters and lobby cards remain. There has been professional conservation to this poster in order to address corner bends, pinholes, some tears, and small chips. Some of these issues are still visible and there is a bit of cracking into the restoration. There was paper loss in the lower right corner that stayed mainly in the borders and has been replaced. The borders has been airbrushed, and the verso has a few pieces of cellophane tape. The poster has never been folded.
Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
