    Description

    Baby Face (Warner Brothers, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Prior to the Production Code of 1934, there were solid, strong roles for female lead characters. This is a prime example of such a role for a young and gorgeous Barbara Stanwyck, who stars as Lilly "Baby Face" Powers, a barmaid with ambitions for better. Worldly-wise, she begins to ascend the social ladder by using her finest "features" to bed and abandon a slew of men on her way to the top. In 1933, the film was submitted to the New York State Board of Censors for consideration. It was quickly rejected and soon banned across the United States for its explicit sexual innuendo. A heavily censored rendition of the film was eventually released, but the original version was believed to be lost forever. In 2004, a copy of the original, un-edited film was unearthed in the Library of Congress. After 70 years, the uncensored "Baby Face" finally received its public premiere at Film Forum in New York City on January 24th, 2005. Heritage is proud to offer this near mint original "Baby Face" one sheet. This rarity is one of five copies that we know of in existence and the condition of this copy is second to none. With only the slightest color touchup to the crossfolds, this unused copy has colors that glow as if they were printed yesterday! Near Mint- on Linen.
