Description

The Public Enemy (Warner Brothers, 1931). Window Card (14" X 22").
In 1931, James Cagney exploded onto the motion picture screen with his breakout role to super stardom as Tom Powers, in Warner Brothers' Public Enemy. His portrayal of the vicious Powers was seen to glorify the underworld of gangs and gangsters and was key to leading to an enforcement of the Motion Picture Production Code. Indeed, when the film was reissued, several cuts were made and a disclaimer prologue was inserted insisting the film did not glorify hoodlums. There was approximately two inches of the imprint area at the top restored, and restoration was also applied to the left and bottom borders, where there were small tears and a chip. The borders and some of the background have been blended with airbrush. Classic, iconic deco image of Cagney and Jean Harlow. Fine+.
