    Description

    G-Men (First National, 1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    In a departure from the tough-as-nails gangster character audiences were used to seeing him portray, here James Cagney plays "Brick" Davis, a G-man on the trail of a former associate. Due to pressure from the Production Code, Warner Brothers decided to simply change the focus from the crook to the cop in this fantastic picture. The new formula worked, as this film grossed more than $1 million in its initial release, an unheard of sum for the time. This dramatic card shows tape stains in the top corners and the bottom border, a small nick and a pencil mark in the top border, corner bumps, a tear in the bottom border, a crease in the center of the card, and a small dust shadow in the bottom right. These slight flaws notwithstanding, this is an extremely attractive, and highly desirable card from one of the greatest films of Cagney's career. Fine.
