DescriptionGrand Hotel (MGM, 1932). Fine. Title Lobby Card & Lobby Card (11" X 14").
MGM went to their roster of talent and cast the biggest names on the studio lot in this all-star drama about the lives of some of the guests at Berlin's finest hotel. The film was a huge success for the studio, winning the Oscar for Best Picture, and inspiring future all-star ensemble casts. The title card has been skillfully restored to correct pinholes in the interior, a couple of small surface scratches, and a tear from the bottom right corner into Lionel Barrymore's image and the title. There is soft surface rippling from the restoration process as well as airbrushing on the verso. The title card's borders were once trimmed but have since been replaced. The scene card shows slight edge wear, mild creases, pinholes, and minor corner chips. Also visible are faint unobtrusive stains and a very small paper lift. There is a moderate tear at the bottom extending into the title which has been braced with archival tape on the verso, as has a minor tear in the bottom right corner. Both cards display mild color fading. Fine.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
