    Sylvia Scarlett (RKO, 1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    On the run from the police, gambler and embezzler Henry Scarlett (Edmund Gwenn) and his daughter Sylvia (Katharine Hepburn) board a ship, with Sylvia disguised as a boy. While aboard, they meet jewel smuggler and "gentleman adventurer" Jimmy Monkley (Cary Grant), who cuts them in on his schemes. One of the most notorious film failures of the 1930s, the movie is seen as significant today not just as one of Grant's breakout roles - his suave and sophisticated jewel thief was a persona he would use again to great effect, most notably in To Catch a Thief (1955) - but as the first pairing of Grant and Hepburn, who would go on together to make such classics as Bringing Up Baby (1938), Holiday (1938), and The Philadelphia Story (1940). This exceptional lobby card, which pictures both Hepburn and Grant, had a chip in the top right corner and some tears in the top border, but expert professional restoration, including reinforcement of the borders on the reverse, has returned this highly desirable card to a like-new appearance. Paper from this title is scarce, so don't let this one get past you. Fine-.
