    Description

    Sunrise (Fox, 1927). Very Good on Paper. Jumbo Lobby Card (14" X 17").
    Janet Gaynor and George O'Brien star in F. W. Murnau's landmark film about an unfaithful farmer who is tempted by a woman from the City (Margaret Livingston). Although he comes close to drowning his wife to satisfy his mistress, ultimately, he can't go through with it. A touching morality play, this is one of the most important films to come out of the silent era. It also earned Janet Gaynor the first-ever Best Actress Academy Award. This rare jumbo lobby card shows O'Brien sneaking back from a rendezvous with his lover at night while wife Gaynor sleeps. The card has been professionally restored to address two areas of paper loss in the right corner, a chip in the top border, and a chip in the lower left corner. There were tears and a hole in the image, and there is minor edge wear that occurred after restoration. This unique item now displays beautifully. Very Good on Paper.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
