DescriptionDeath Takes a Holiday (Paramount, 1934). Full-Bleed Japanese Pre-War B2 (17.5" X 24.5").
Fredric March, as the Grim Reaper, decides to take on human form and spend some time amongst mortals to discover why they fear him. The Reaper's heart is softened when he falls in love with Grazia (Evelyn Venable), who in turn falls for him and decides to sacrifice her own humanity for her beloved. A rare first time offering from Heritage, this pre-war Japanese B2 has undergone conservation to address fold wear, chipping at the edges, and tears in the borders and interior. There were a few small tears in Fredric March's face, and the white background and yellow text have been partially airbrushed. Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
