DescriptionMantrap (Paramount, 1926). Folded, Very Fine+. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5"). Eric Rohman Artwork.
By the time she made this picture, based on a popular novel by Sinclair Lewis, Clara Bow was at the peak of her career. Here, she plays Alvema, a flirtatious young woman who marries strapping mountain man Joe Easter (Ernest Torrence). They both believe they will live their lives happily ever after, but a slick city lawyer Ralph Prescott (Percy Marmont) appears in their idyllic backwoods paradise on vacation and sets his sights on Alvema. The Swedish poster offered here, a first for Heritage, features a beautiful image of Bow. The poster has one extra very slight fold line on it and a few very tiny edge tears in the bottom border. Other that this though, the poster is in spectacular unused condition.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
