    Description

    Sadie Thompson (United Artists, 1928). Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14"). Offered in this lot are two wonderful cards from the first screen adaptation of W. Somerset Maugham's collection of short stories, Rain. Directed by and starring Raoul Walsh, the film was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Gloria Swanson) and Best Cinematography. One of these cards features a beautiful close-up portrait of Walsh and Swanson. The other features a pivotal scene in which Lionel Barrymore, playing the sermonizing Alfred Davidson, proceeds to destroy the phonograph Sadie is entertaining a small group of Marines with. Both of these cards has only one or two pinholes in the lower center credit area. Each has minor lower left corner bending and a rubber stamp on the reverse. Each also has a small hand-written note on the back upper left corner. Each card features extraordinary colors and gorgeous images. Very Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
