Description

    Baby Face (Warner Brothers, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Baby Face was one of the most notorious pre-Code films to come out of Hollywood. Starring Barbara Stanwyck as Lilly "Baby Face" Palmer, a barmaid who decides to climb the social ladder by seducing every man who can open the doors for her on the way to the top. The film was submitted to the New York State Board of Censors for consideration. It was quickly rejected and soon banned across the United States for its explicit sexual innuendo. With some of its steamier scenes either cut or reshot, and a new ending tacked on, it was finally released, still full of sexual innuendo. After the Production Code was enforced in 1934, the film, even in its censored version, was not allowed to be re-released. Amazingly enough, in 2004, a copy of the original, un-edited film was unearthed in the Library of Congress. After 70 years, the uncensored Baby Face finally received its public premiere at Film Forum in New York City on January 24th, 2005 and was subsequently released on DVD in the first volume of Warners' Forbidden Hollywood collection. Heritage is pleased to be able to offer a very rare and unrestored one sheet from this classic film, one of only a handful that have ever surfaced. The poster has some extra horizontal creases, light wrinkling, and pinpoint crossfold separations. The colors on this poster are bright and fresh and this beauty would make a prized addition to anyone's collection. Very Fine-.
