    Description

    The Roaring Twenties (Warner Brothers, 1939). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    A classic of the gangster genre, this exceptional picture teams James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart, two of the biggest stars on the Warner lot. Following their return from the trenches of World War I, three former comrades in arms (Cagney, Bogart, and Jeffrey Lynn) take very different paths, but end up in much the same place as Depression-era bootleggers. This was, in fact, Cagney's last gangster film for Warners; attempting to expand his image, Cagney would not return to bad guy roles until 1949's White Heat. Offered here is the best lobby card in the set, a fabulous linen-finish portrait card featuring Bogart and Cagney in full gangster regalia. It has pinholes in the image area, light edge wear in the bottom border, corner bends and bumps, light creasing in the left side, a minor crease in the top border, and a small tear in the left border. These are all minor flaws, however, and do nothing to detract from the overwhelming appeal of this highly desirable card. Fine+.
