    Crack-Up (20th Century Fox, 1936). Very Good/Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    Making its Heritage debut, this stylistic stone litho one sheet features excellent portraits of the cast with an Art Deco flair. Crack-Up was only Peter Lorre's third film in the U.S. after transplanting from his career in Germany, but he used his talents and experience to give an entertaining sardonic twist to his role as the movie's villain. He plays opposite of protagonist Brian Donlevy and Helen Wood in this aviation espionage story, and would soon star in the first of his Mr. Moto series the next year in 1937. Touchup has been applied to the folds, chips in the borders and folds, as well as tears. Also addressed, but still visible, is faint staining in the left border, and tape stains in the borders and image along the folds.

    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
