Description

    Murder in Harlem (Micheaux Film Corporation, 1935). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Based on the infamous Leo Frank case of 1915 (Frank was an American Jew living in Georgia, convicted of raping and murdering a young girl, although subsequent evidence cast doubt on his guilt. After his sentence was commuted to life, he was kidnapped from prison and lynched), this film, directed by Oscar Micheaux, tells the story of Henry Glory (Clarence Brooks), a night watchmen who finds a dead girl in a chemical warehouse and is himself accused of the crime. The striking title card offered here shows light surface scratches, edge wear in the left border, light creasing in the left side and in the top right, and a small dent in the right center. It remains, however, a beautiful piece from an important director, one of the leading figures in early black cinema. Very Fine-.
