    Description

    Millie (RKO, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Essentially covering the most scandalous pre-enforced Hays Code topics--adultery, rape, divorce, abandonment, casual sex, and a murderer who gets away with it in the end--this melodrama keeps audiences engaged from start to finish. It tells the story of young Millie Blake (Helen Twelvetrees) who, at a young age, falls in love with and marries Jack Maitland (James Hall), a successful businessman who is also a philandering cad. Twelvetrees, dubbed the "electrifying sensation," left a career on the stage for a life in Hollywood in 1929, part of a group of new actors brought to the West Coast to replace established stars who would not, or could not, make the transition from silent pictures to sound. A smoldering beauty, Twelvetrees is captured to perfection on this gorgeous and extremely rare, stone litho one sheet. The very scarce one sheet offered here displays very well after expert professional restoration to address minor cross fold separation, and very slight paper loss in the vertical fold in the image area. Whether a seasoned collector or a neophyte, this item is one not to miss! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
