    Description

    Four Frightened People (Paramount, 1934). Midget Window Card (8" X 14"). Although rightly famous for his spectacular historical epics, director Cecil B. DeMille proved that he was every bit as adept with smaller, more intimate films with this intriguing character study. When an outbreak of bubonic plague is detected aboard an ocean liner, four passengers jump ship and head for a nearby island. Thrust together in almost unimaginable circumstances, the quartet - the wealthy chemist (Herbert Marshall), the prim and proper school teacher (Claudette Colbert), the hard-bitten newspaper man (William Gargan), and the arrogant Officer's wife (Mary Boland) - must work together to survive in this new, and inhospitable, environment. A fascinating pre-Code drama, the film is represented here by a wonderful midget window card, with only a slight water stain in the bottom left keeping it from an even higher grade. Colbert is dazzling, making this a card that any fan of classic Hollywood will covet. Very Fine/Near Mint.
