    Description

    Dishonored (Paramount, 1931). Fine+ on Linen. Trimmed Pre-War Belgian (24.5" X 31.5").
    In 1930, Director Josef von Sternberg helmed what some have called the first major classic of the sound era. The film was Der blaue Engel (The Blue Angel), and starred a radiant young actress named Marlene Dietrich as the irresistible cabaret singer Lola-Lola (prior to her screen debut, Dietrich had worked as a cabaret singer in Berlin in real life). The picture was an international hit, and enabled both Dietrich and von Sternberg to make the move to America, where they set out to conquer Hollywood. They would eventually make six pictures together in America; Morocco was the first, Dishonored was the second. Although von Sternberg's career would sputter and falter throughout the next two decades, Dietrich would quickly become one of the most glamorous and desirable women in the world, embodying the Hollywood ideal of mystery, allure, and elegance. Certainly a beautiful piece, this touching illustration of Dietrich with her romantic lead, the roguishly handsome Victor McLaglen, is the very same found on this Belgian poster's American style A counterpart. This brilliant stone litho piece has benefited from light touchup to the folds, with unaddressed pinholes in the corners and minor tears at the edges. The imprint area has been trimmed, and there are some ink transfer remnants at the top, possibly from a removed snipe. The image itself, however was nearly flawless even prior to restoration, and displays very well.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
