    Description

    Louise Brooks in "The Canary Murder Case" by George Hommel (Paramount, 1929). Portrait Photo (8" X 10").
    Vintage gelatin silver, single weight, glossy photo. The quintessential Jazz Age beauty, Louise Brooks stars as a nightclub dancer, for this Philo Vance murder mystery. In this gorgeously set up portrait, she is alluringly dressed in feathers, with the shadow of her cage cast over her. This is a rare and special image of Brooks from one of her top films. It is in beautiful condition with only three minor corner creases. Verso: Paramount/Hommel credit stamp, and two collectors stamps. Very Fine+.
