    Description

    Baby Face (Warner Brothers, 1933). Pre-War Belgian (22" X 30.75").
    One of the most debated films of its time, Baby Face proved to be a catalyst for the enforcement of the Production Code in 1934. Barbara Stanwyck is Lilly "Baby Face" Palmer, a barmaid who has lived a life in the company of cigar smoke, booze, and drunken banter at her father's dive. After his unexpected death, and some sage advice from a bar patron, she sets out to conquer the world at the expense of men. This phenomenal pre-war Belgian features a fantastic stone litho image of Stanwyck, and is the first that we have ever sold. The poster has received no touchup, but was backed on foam core. It has a minor tear in the upper border, a small nick and chip in the right border, and a few dust shadows. The imprint area has been trimmed, but the arresting interior of the poster is in great shape and shows little wear. From the collection of noted film historian Richard Schickel. Fine- on Foam Core.
