Description

    The Devil's Circus (MGM, 1926). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Cards (5) (11" X 14").
    Norma Shearer, the "First Lady of MGM," was initially rejected by legendary Broadway impresario Florenz Ziegfeld for his Follies, but found work as an extra in several movies. Despite having a cross-eyed stare, the actress worked steadily, earning more substantial roles over time and winning an Oscar in 1930 for her performance in The Divorcee. In The Devil's Circus Shearer plays Mary, a trapeze artist who falls in love with a handsome pickpocket. The colorful title and scene cards have been hand tinted. The title card has a small stain in the lower left corner, and a bend in the upper right corner. The close-up of Norma Shearer has minor scuffing in the upper border, and a corner bend. The jail card has two unobtrusive pinholes. The trio card has a chip in the lower left corner, smudging throughout, a tear in the upper border, and staining in the image. The fight card shows staining in the borders, and minor surface paper loss in the upper and lower borders. The lion card has minor surface paper loss in the lower left corner. Fine/Very Fine.
