    Scarface (United Artists, 1932). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    A rare original issue lobby card from one of filmdom's most controversial gangster productions. The team of producer Howard Hughes and Director Howard Hawks combined to produce an intensely violent tale of mob life, that quickly drew the attention of industry censors. The head of the MPPDA (Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America) objected to the title and asked that it be changed. Howard Hughes, who had agreed to make some changes in the film in order to get it distributed, drew the line at changing the title. The compromise that was reached was Scarface, the Shame of a Nation with the tagline overprinted on the original cards. Most material available today carries the revised title, making this card a very hard to find piece. The card had a small chip from the left border only and a reattached right lower corner. The card has been professionally restored and looks wonderful. A unique and highly collectible item. Very Fine-.
