    Description

    Charlie Chan in Egypt (Fox, 1935). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14"). Usually regarded as one of the best entries in the Chan series, this film stars Warner Oland as the famed Oriental sleuth, who is working on behalf of the French Archaeological Society concerning Egyptian antiquities being sold to private collectors and rival museums. When Oland arrives he finds the mummified remains of Professor Arnold, the head of the expedition, and soon begins a murder investigation. Also appearing in the film is the young Rita Cansino, or Rita Hayworth, as she would later be known, and Stepin Fetchit. The title card has small pieces of cellophane tape on the back of three corners with slight bending to several of the corners. There is some small amount of silverfish nibbling on the upper right corner and the middle of the right border. The card with Oland and the group of men has two pinholes in the image at each corner. The close-up card has a bend which has broken the surface of the card that runs through Oland's arm and through the brim of his hat but not touching his face. It has been supported with cellophane tape on the backside. There is another bend through the back of the young man's head into his neck. It is supported as well with tape on the backside. All in all these are very rare cards and display beautifully. Fine/Very Fine.
