    Inspiration (MGM, 1931). Folded, Very Fine-. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5").
    Adapted from Alphonse Daudet's 1884 French novel Sappho, this pre-Code drama stars Greta Garbo as a Parisian art model, who falls for a young artist played by Robert Montgomery. Critics praised Garbo for her talented acting throughout the film, citing her emotional performance as the best part of the picture. Making its first appearance at Heritage, this stone litho Swedish one sheet shows signs of use such as slight edge and fold wear, moderate fold separations, light creases, and pinholes. There are also a few small tears and unobtrusive smudges. Folded, Very Fine-.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
