Description

    My Sin (Paramount, 1931). Insert (14" X 36").
    Tallulah Bankhead is Carlotta, a hostess in a Panamanian cantina who is about to marry a wealthy man of society, when her sordid past catches up with her. Bankhead's pre-Code niche was the "woman's picture" brimming with romance, suffering, and an ample amount of angst. In My Sin she gets a chance to display her dazzling figure and distinctive voice, as she warbles a jazzy "scat" ditty called "Crazy Tom" while sitting on the bar in the cantina. Fredric March provides a strong leading performance opposite Bankhead, and both are featured on this extremely rare insert. The interior of this poster is remarkably clean and free of most defects, excluding a couple of horizontal creases. The left and right borders were once trimmed, extending slightly into the orange background, and have since been skillfully replaced. Fine+ on Paper.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
