    Description

    Morocco (Paramount, 1930). Banner (36" X 118").
    The storied start of Hollywood legend Marlene Dietrich goes something like this: Berlin, 1929. Director Josef von Sternberg, while enjoying a cabaret show one evening, is instantly and irreversibly mesmerized by one magnetic performance. He immediately recognized Dietrich's undeniable star presence, and cast the young actress in his next production, The Blue Angel. That film became a major hit and made Dietrich an overnight sensation. From there, he signed her to a contract and brought her to the US for her American movie debut, Morocco. Aided by some of the best cinematography of all time, Dietrich would leave audiences spellbound by her sensuality, her deep voice, her cross-dressing sense of style and her confidence while kissing another woman (it was still Pre-Code Hollywood). As the cabaret singer Amy Jolie, Dietrich ensnares men of all types, captures the heart of a millionaire (Adolphe Menjou), but falls for the womanizing Legionnaire Gary Cooper. An exceedingly rare banner is offered here, a glorious stone litho homage to this cinematic triumph. It has been professionally restored with touchups to fold wear, primarily in the title and a vertical fold through Dietrich's face. All four corners have been restored, due to removal of grommets that would have been in the corners, and the linen has been trimmed to the edge of the poster. Fine+ on Linen.
