    Description

    The Single Standard (MGM, 1929). Insert (14" X 36"). Garbo plays a freespirited socialite who rejects the "double standard" of the day and prefers to live by her own "single standard," engaging in flings with any man she chooses; much scandal ensues. This finely-wrought melodrama was Garbo's penultimate silent film, ably directed by John S. Robertson. A lovely portrait of Garbo dominates this elegant, deco-inspired insert. The poster had pinholes and small chips out of the left border, which have been addressed with professional restoration, which includes paper-backing and airbrushing of the left border. The top and bottom borders appear to be small and there is question as to whether they may have been slightly trimmed but the piece does measure 36 inches long! One of the best Garbo sheets we've offered. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
