    Description

    Roaring Twenties (Warner Brothers, 1939). Midget Window Card (8" X 14"). This last of the '30s gangster films, with James Cagney in the thinly-disguised (and humanized) lead role, was based upon the real-life rise and fall of New York mobster/racketeer Larry Fay who had a business relationship with his brassy, frowsy saloon singer-promoter and hostess Texas Guinan (Gladys George's role as Panama Smith). Humphrey Bogart co-stars as Cagney's ruthless second-fiddle lieutenant and then as his rival. This would be the last film in which they would co-star. This great midget card is identical to the one sheet and has a small chunk out of the upper left corner. There is a bend in the upper right corner and a torn pinhole in the right border. There is grease-pencil writing of a date in the imprint area. Printed on the linen-finish paper Warner's used prior to the war, this card just glows with its deep colors and dynamic image. Fine.

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